For each unit of return, the funds have equal risk.
If s represents risks and x represents expected
return, then s/x can be thought of as a measure

Kevlar epoxy is a material used on the NASA space
shuttles. Strands of this epoxy were tested at the
90% breaking strength. The following data
represent time to failure (in hours) for a random
sample of 50 epoxy strands. Let x be a random
variable representing time to failure (in hours) at
90% breaking strength.

(a) Find the range.
(b) Use a calculator to calculate Ex and Ex2.
(Round your answers to two decimal places.)
Ex = 62 11
Ex2 = 164.23
(c) Use the results of part (b) to compute the
sample mean, variance, and standard deviation
for the time to failure. (Round your answers to
