The company wishes to offer a warrantee for a free replacement of any transmissions that fail prematurely, but only wants to replace 1% of the transmissions that they sell. How long should they set the warrantee period?

we know the percentage of replacement=1%

to solve for time period we need the additional data how many products made for a exact period of time

but it's not given in the question

so lets assume 100 products made for warranty period

0.1=x/100

x=10

so warranty period is 10 months

but we assumed warranty period is given in months...

It has been determined that the lifetime of transmission is normally distributed with an average of 78,000 miles and a standard deviation of 15000 miles

ok i'll check then

Jun 3rd, 2015

z=x-mean/stranded deviation

z=x-78000/15000

but we need more additional data.can you send me hole question?

This is the whole question. It has been determined that the lifetime (time until failure) of this transition is normally distributed with an average of 78,000 miles and a standard deviation of 15,000 miles.

First question: What percentage of these transmissions will last at least 90,000 miles? answer= 21%

So the second question..

So the company wishes to offer a warrantee for a free replacement of any transmissions that fail prematurely, but only wants to replace 1% of the transmissions that they sell. How long should they set the warrantee period?
