A company manufactures automobile transmissions. It has been determined that the lifetime (time until failure) of this transmission is normally distributed with an average of 78,000 miles and a standard deviation of 15,000 miles. What percentage of these transmissions will last at least 90,000 miles?

z = (90-78)/15

z = 12/15 = 4/5

P(X≥90,000)=1-P(X<90,000)

1-P(z<0.8)=1-0.7881=0.2119, or 21% :)

The probability that there will be a power failure during a snowstorm is .35. The probability that the generator will stop working during a snowstorm is .05. Find the probability that during a snowstorm the company will have at least one power source. Of course, the two power sources function independently.
