    1.

    The normal table :

    http://www.sjsu.edu/faculty/gerstman/EpiInfo/z-tab...

    i)

    P(x > 80)

    = P(z > (80 - 60)/10)

    = P(z > 2)

    = 1 - P(z ≤ 2)

    = 1 - 0.9772

    = 0.0288

    ii)

    P(x < 40)

    = P(z < (40 - 60)/10)

    = P(z < -2)

    = P(z > 2)

    = 0.0288

    = = = = =

    2)

    i)

    P(4 out of 5 appliances are defective)

    = C(5, 4) ´ (10%)^4 ´ (1 - 10%)

    = 5 ´ (0.1)^4 ´ 0.9

    = 0.00045

    ii)

    P(at least one of the 5 appliances is defective)

    = 1 - P(none of the 5 appliances is defective)

    = 1 - (1 - 10%)^5

    = 0.40951
