5. The volumes of soda in quart soda bottles are normally distributed with a mean of 32.3 oz and a standard deviation of 1.2 oz. What is the probability that the volume of soda in a randomly selected bottle will be less than 32 oz? (Points : 7) 0.0987 0.4013 0.5987 0.3821

6. The diameters of bolts produced by a certain machine are normally distributed with a mean of 0.30 inches and a standard deviation of 0.01 inches. What percentage of bolts will have a diameter greater than 0.32 inches? (Points : 7) 2.28% 37.45% 47.72% 97.72%

7. A bank's loan officer rates applicants for credit. The ratings are normally distributed with a mean of 200 and a standard deviation of 50. What is the score which separates the lower 60% from the top 40%? (Points : 7) 207.8 212.5 187.5 211.3

11. The accompanying table shows the probability distribution for x, the number that shows up when a loaded die is rolled. Find the mean of the given probability distribution. (Points : 6) 4.21 0.17 3.50 4.08

12. Determine whether the given procedure results in a binomial distribution. If not, state the reason why: Rolling a single die 26 times, keeping track of the "fives" rolled. (Points : 6) Not binomial: the trials are not independent. Not binomial: there are too many trials. Not binomial: there are more than two categories for each trial. Procedure results in a binomial distribution.
