The area under the standard normal curve where a. P(Z< +1.52) = b. P(Z> +1.62) = c. P(-1.14 < Z < +1.14) = d. P(1.02 < Z < 2.40) = The diameters of ball bearings are distributed normally. The mean diameter is 58 millimeters and the variance is 9. Find the probability that the diameter of the selected bearing is greater than 61 millimeters. The life of light bulbs is distributed normally. The standard deviation of the life time is 30 and the mean lifetime of a bulb is 500 hours. Find the probability of a bulb lasting for atmost 545 hours. A soft drink machine outputs a mean of 28 ounces per cup.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
