P (X > 50.32) = 0.119, and P(X < 43.56) = 0.305.
(a) Find µ and σ.
(5) (b) Hence find P(X – µ < 5).

3x + y + z = 1
2x + y – z = 4
5x + y + bz = 1
(a) Solve for z in terms of b.
(4) (b) Hence write down, with a reason, the range of values of b for which this system of
equations has a unique solution.

(a) Given that P (X = 4) = P (X = 2) + P (X = 3), find the value of λ.
(3) (b) Given that λ = 3.2, find the value of
(i) P(X ≥ 2); (ii) P(X ≤ 3 X ≥ 2).

that, in one month, 15 babies were born. For these babies, ∑x = 55.5 and ∑x2 = 215.8.
Assuming that weights of babies are normally distributed, calculate a 99 % confidence interval
for the mean weight of babies born in this hospital.
(Total 5 marks) 619. Eggs at a farm are sold in boxes of six. Each egg is either brown or white. The owner believes
that the number of brown eggs in a box can be modelled by a binomial distribution. He
examines 100 boxes and obtains the following data.
Number of brown eggs in a box
0 10 1 29 2 31 3 18 4 8 5 3 6
(a) Frequency 1 (i) Calculate the mean number of brown eggs in a box. (ii) Hence estimate p, the probability that a randomly chosen egg is brown.
(2) (b) By calculating an appropriate χ2 statistic, test, at the 5 % significance level, whether or
not the binomial distribution gives a good fit to these data.

x Construct the operation table for the group {S,°}, where ° is the composition of
functions.
(3) (b) The following are the operation tables for the groups {0, 1, 2, 3} under addition modulo
4, and {1, 2, 3, 4} under multiplication modulo 5.

which groups are isomorphic. Give reasons for your answers. State clearly the corresponding
elements.
