For each of the following questions, you must statethe random variable you are using and the distribution assumption you make.(a) What is the probability that an Xmax battery will last at most 800 hours? What is this probabilityfor a Y-cell battery?(b) Assume, two batteries are randomly selected, one Xmax and one Y-cell. What can you say aboutthe differenceDin their lifetimes? It turns out thatDis also Normally distributed. Find expectedvalue and variance and the random variableD.(c) You notice that, on average, Y-cell batteries will last longer than Xmax batteries. But what is theexact probability that the Y-cell batteries will last longer than Xmax batteries?
