Solve the problem. The amount of snowfall falling in a certain

Resolved Question:

Solve the problem.
The amount of snowfall falling in a certain mountain range is normally distributed with a mean of 94 inches, and a standard deviation of 14 inches. What is the probability that the mean annual snowfall during 49 randomly picked years will exceed 96.8 inches? (Points : 5)
0.0808
0.0026
0.4192
0.5808


6. Estimate the indicated probability by using the normal distribution as an approximation to the binomial distribution.
With n = 18 and p = 0.30, estimate P(6). (Points : 5)

7. Use the normal distribution to approximate the desired probability.
A coin is tossed 20 times. A person, who claims to have extrasensory perception, is asked to predict the outcome of each flip in advance. She predicts correctly on 14 tosses. What is the probability of being correct 14 or more times by guessing? Does this probability seem to verify her claim? (Points : 5)
0.4418, no
0.0582, no
0.4418, yes
0.0582, yes


8. Solve the problem.

0.435 < p < 0.508
0.438 < p < 0.505
0.444 < p < 0.500


14. Solve the problem.
A newspaper article about the results of a poll states: "In theory, the results of such a poll, in 99 cases out of 100 should differ by no more than 5 percentage points in either direction from what would have been obtained by interviewing all voters in the United States."
