SECTION 4.11 105 The number of particles emitted by both masses together is S X Y . Since X and Y are independent, and both approximately normal, S is approximately normal as well, with mean μ S 100 125 225 and standard deviation σ S 100 125 15. The z -score of 200 is 200 225 15 1 67. The area to the left of z 1 67 is 0.0475. P S 200 0 0475. (b) Let X be the number of particles emitted by mass A and let Y be the number of particles emitted by mass B in a two-minute time period. Then X Poisson 40 and Y Poisson 50 . Now X is approximately normal with mean 40 and variance 40, and Y is approximately normal with mean 50 and variance 50. The difference between the numbers of particles emitted by the two masses is D Y X . Mass B emits more particles than mass A if D 0. Since X and Y are independent, and both approximately normal, D is approximately normal as well, with mean μ D 50 40 10 and standard deviation σ D 50 40 9 486833. The z -score of 0 is 0 10 9 486833 1 05. The area to the right of z 1 05 is 1 0 1469 0 8531.

### 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.
