    The drying rate in an industrial process is dependent on many factors and varies according to the following distribution.

    Minutes Relative Frequency

    3 0.22

    4 0.36

    5 0.28

    6 0.10

    7 0.04

    Using these random numbers, simulate the drying time for 5 processes: 0.53; 0.95; 0.97; 0.96; and 0.07.

    Solution Preview

    In order to use the provided random numbers to simulate drying times, we must first calculate the cummulative relative frequency for the distribution of drying times. This yields:

    Minutes Relative Frequency Cumm Frequency

    3 0.22 ...

    Solution Summary

    The drying rate is used.
