Power+, Inc produces AA batteries used in remote controlled toy cars. The mean life of these batteries follows the normal probability with a mean of 37 hours and a standard deviation of 5.5 hours.

As a part of its quality assurance program Power+, Inc. tests sample of 9 batteries

a) What proportion of the sample will have a mean useful life greater than 36.5 hours ?

b) what proportion of the sample will have a mean useful life between 36.5 and 38.5hrs? (Round z value to 2 decimal places and final 4

For sample means you have to divide the standard deviation by the square root of the sample number.

So, the sample standard deviation is 5.5 / √9 = 5.5 / 3 = 1.833

Then,

a) Z = 36.5-37 / 1.833 = -0.27

then p(36.5)  = 0.3936

b)  Z of 38.5 = 38.5-36.5 / 1.833 = 1.09

then p(38.5) = 0.8621

between 36.5 and 38.5 is

0.8621 - 0.3936 = 0.4685

Oh, sorry, correct for a)

they want the proportion GREATER than 36.5

So then it's  1 - 0.3936 = 0.6064

that's the correction for a)
