Using the standard normal table, z = – 1.34 . t x = μ + σ ⋅ z . x = 410 + 60 ⋅ ( – 1.34 ) = 329.6 days . d) (4) What is the probability that the average duration of troublefree operation of (a random sample of) 10 FAX machines is over 1 year (365 days)? μ = 410, σ = 60, n = 10. Need P( X ≥ 365 ) = ? Since the population we sample from is normal, . n Z X =σ μ P( X ≥ 365 ) = ≥ 10 60 410 365 Z P = P( Z ≥ – 2.37 ) = 1 – Φ ( – 2.37 ) = 1 – 0.0089 = 0.9911 ....
