Question

# Use formula (5.23) to obtain a sample of 25 outcomes for a game of Battleship ™ as described in Problem 34.

Find the average and standard deviation for these 25 outcomes. Formula (5.23) is: U=a + (b-a)*RAND()

For Problem 5.45, the standard deviation of the time to play the game for your 25 samples is closest to

A. 2 minutes

B. 36 mnutes

C. 150 minutes

D. 12 minutes

34."The time required to play a game of Battleship ™ is uniformly distributed between 15 and 60 minutes.
