Lecture Suggestions - Supplement to Chapter 4 Example 3: Service Life - Normal Distribution 1. 2. 3. Specify the time T = 7 Point out on the graph that the vertical red line corresponds to T and the probability of wearout before T is under the normal curve to the left of the red line and the probability of wearout after T is under the normal curve to the right of the red line. The actual probabilities, along with z (the number of standard deviations from the mean), are also computed to the left of the graph. You may want to use the spinner button beside T to demonstrate the probabilities of wearout for different values of T. 4. Trail and error approach: As you make the changes below, watch P(failure before T), you want it to be equal to .1

Unformatted text preview: Select the Example 3 worksheet. The following data has been entered: Enter data , service life mean = 6 years and standard deviation = 1 year (both given). Parts a and b: you want to find P(failure before T) and P(failure after T) for T=7. Part c: you want to find the value for T where P(failure before T) = .10. Set ∆ T = 1, use spinner button to find that necessary T is between 4 and 5 Set ∆ T = .1, use spinner button to find that necessary T is between 4.7 and 4.8 Set ∆ T = .01, use spinner button to find that necessary T is closest to 4.72....

### 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.
