1. Horse race time is found to be normally distributed with a mean value of 18 minutes and a standard deviation of 4 minutes. Horses whose race time is in the top 6% will not be eligible to participate in a second round. What is the lowers race time that makes a horse losses his eligibility to participate in a second round

Welcome and Thanks for using Just Answer.

 

The z- score such that 6% of the area under the normal curve lies above it is

 

z = 1.5548

 

μ = 18 and σ = 4

 

x = μ + z * σ

 

x = 18 + 1.5548 * 4 = 24.22

 

The lowest race time that makes a horse loss his eligibility to participate in a

 

second round is 24.22 minutes
