# Normal Distribution: Length of a Typical Baseball Game

Assume that the length of a typical televised baseball game, including all the TV timeouts, is normally distributed with a mean of 2.45 hours and standard deviation of 0.37 hour. Consider a televised baseball game that begins at 2:00 in the afternoon. The next scheduled program broadcast starts at 5:00.

a. What is the probability that the game will cut into the next show (go past 5:00)?

b. If the game is over before 4:30, another half-hour show can be inserted into the 4:30-5:00 slot. What is the probability of this occurring?
