(a) What proportion of television sets break down in less than 72 months? (2) (b) (i) Calculate the proportion of sets which have a lifetime between 72 months and 90 months. (ii) Illustrate this proportion by appropriate shading in a sketch of a normal distribution curve. (5) (c) If a set breaks down in less than x months, the company replace it free of charge. They replace 4% of the sets. Find the value of x. (3) (Total 10 marks) 531. Consider the function f(x) = cos x + sin x.
