Question

Canadian Tire Company has produced a new tire with an estimated mean

lifetime mileage of 36,500 miles. Management also believes that the standard deviation is 5000 miles and that tire mileage is normally distributed. To promote the new tire, Canadian Tire has offered to refund a portion of the purchase price if the tire fails to reach 30,000 miles before the tire needs to be replaced. Specifically, for tires with a lifetime below 30,000 miles, Canadian Tire will refund a customer $1 per 100 miles short of 30,000. 
a)     For each tire sold, what is the expected cost of the promotion? 
b)    What is the probability that Canadian Tire will refund more than $50 for a tire? 
c)     What mileage should Canadian Tire set the promotion claim if it wants the expected cost to be $2?
