There are five flights daily from Rome via Air Italia into Zurich. Suppose the probability that any flight arrives late is 0.20. Assuming that the number of flights arriving late is distributed as a binomial distribution, answer the following questions: a. b. c. d. What is the probability that exactly one of the flights is late in a day? What is the probability that at most two of the flights are late in a day? What is the probability that at least one of the flights is late in a day? What are the mean and standard deviation of the number of flights arriving late? and . Let X be the number of flights arriving late. a. P(X = 1) = ? ( ) ( ( ) ( ) ) ( ( ) ) b. P(X ≤ 2) = ? ( ) ( ( ) ( ) ( ) ) ( ( ) = 0.94 c. ( ) ( ) ( )( d.

A study of long-distance phone calls made from the corporate offices of XYZ Company revealed that the length of the calls, in minutes, follows the normal probability distribution. The mean length of time per call was 4.2 minutes and the standard deviation was 0.6 minutes. a. What is the probability that the calls made from the corporate offices of XYZ Company last less than 5 minutes? b. What is the probability that the calls made from the corporate offices of XYZ Company last more than 4.5 minutes? c. What is the probability that the calls made from the corporate offices of XYZ Company last between 3 and 6 minutes? d. The calls made from the corporate offices of XYZ Company last less than how many minutes with 90% probability? minutes and minutes Let X be the length of long-distance phone calls made from the corporate offices of XYZ company b.
