From past experience, an airline has found the luggage weight for individual air travelers on its trans-Atlantic route to have a
mean of 80 pounds and a standard deviation of 20 pounds. The plane is consistently fully booked and holds 100 passengers.
The pilot insists on loading an extra 500 pounds of fuel whenever the total luggage weight exceeds 8300 pounds. On what percentage of the flights will she end up having the extra fuel loaded? the extra fuel loaded?

The E.P.A. has reported that the average fuel cost for a particular type of automobile is $800 with a standard deviation of $80. Fuel cost is assumed to be normally distributed. We would expect that only 10% of these cars would have an annual fuel cost greater than _______.

1. Suppose that the monthly worldwide average of airplane crashes of commercial planes is 2.0.
(a) What is the probability of exactly 6 crashes in the first 3 months?
(b) What is the probability of having exactly 2 crashes in each of the first two months?
(c) What is the probability of having exactly 2 crashes in the each of

A certain Airplane has two independent alternators to provide electrical power. The probability that a given alternator will fail on a 1 hour flight is .02. what is the probability that (a) both will fail? (b) Neither will fail? (C) One or the other will fail. Show all steps carefully

Airplane Safety: Suppose that 62% of all adults think that airplanes would be safer places if pilots carried guns. An opinion poll plans to ask an SRS of 1009 adults about airplane safety. The proportion of the sample who think that airplanes would be safer if pilots carried guns will vary if we take many samples from this same

A delivery truck averages 15 miles per gallon, with a standard deviation of 3 miles per gallon, and that fuel consumption is Normally Distributed. Using the Normal Distribution, if the total trip mileage for that day is 200 miles, what is the minimum amount of fuel (gallons) that the driver should start the trip with to ensure

A certain airplane has two independent alternators to provide electrical power. The probability that a given alternator will fail on a 1-hour flight is .02. What is the probability that (a) both will fail? (b) Neither will fail? (c) One or the other will fail? Show all steps carefully.

A certain airplane has two alternators to provide electrical power. The probability that a given alternator will fail on a 1-hour flight is.02. What is the probability that(a)both will fail? (b) neither will fail. (c) one or other will fail. Show steps. Do not understand the concept of figuring out the solution for probability p

Assume that the mean hourly cost to operate a commercial airplane follows the normal distribution with a mean $2100 per hour and a standard deviation of $250. What is the operating cost for the lowest 3 percent of the airplanes?

A certain airplane has two independent alternators to provide electrical power. The probability that a given alternator will fail on a 1-hour flight is .02. What is the probability that (a)both will fail? (b)Neither will fail? (c)One of the other will fail? Show all steps carefully.
