From past experience, an airline has found the luggage weight for individual air travelers on its tra a mean of 80 pounds and a standard deviation of 20 pounds. The plane is consistently fully booke insists on loading an extra 500 pounds of fuel whenever the total luggage weight exceeds 8300 po of the flights will she end up having the extra fuel loaded? μ = 80 -x = σ over the square root of n σ 20 20 = 20 σ square root of 100 10 n = 100 x= 2 σ x x x z = 83-80 x σ 2 z= 1.5 0.43 .50 - .4332 0.07 66.8 % of flights will end up havng extra fuel load P (– > 8300/100) P (– > 83) z= – - μ

It has been reported that 42.6% of U.S. workers employed as purchasing managers are females. I of U.S. purchasig managers, 70 out of 200 are females. Given this information: 42.6 = U.S. worker employed as purchasing managers are females 70 females n =200 42.6% is the population proportion. b. What is the sample proportion, p? 70 0.35 P= 0.35 200 c. What is the standard error of the sample proportion? p = square root of (1- ) σ π λ = square root of .426 (1 - .426) n 200 = square root of 0.00122262 = 0.04 d. In the sampling distribution of the proportion, what is the probability that a sample of this size wo proportion at least as large as that found in part (b)? n = 200 = -2.17 p = 0.035 σ 0.04 0.4850 μ = 0.426 x = 0.35 λ op .5 + .4850 0.99 a.
