1) Tire Life - The life of a tire is normally distributed with a mean of 76,000 miles and a standard deviation of 10,000 miles.

a) Determine the probability that a tire will last for less than 67,000 miles.

b) Determine the probability that a tire will last for more than 67,000 miles.

c) Determine the probability that a tire will last for less than 80,000 miles.

d) Determine the probability that a tire will last between 67000 and 80000 miles?

e) The company offers a warranty. The warranty costs \$8 per tire returned. If the company sets the warranty miles at 67000, how much on average per tire will the warranty cost?

2) Church Fund Raiser - The amount of money earned at the church charity auction for the last 20 years is in the following table. Assume a normal distribution. (Use Excel)

What is the mean?
