    The Bureau of Labor Statistics' American Time Use Survey showed that the amount of time spent using a computer for leisure varied greatly by age. Individuals age 75 and over averaged .15 hour (9 minutes) per day using a computer for leisure. Individuals ages 15 to 19 spend 1.0 hour per day using a computer for leisure. If these times follow an exponential distribution, find the proportion of each group that spends:

    Less than 8 minutes per day using a computer for leisure. (Round your answers to 4 decimal places.)

    Proportion _____ and _____

    More than two hours. (Round your answers to 4 decimal places.)

    Proportion ____ and ____

    Between 16 minutes and 48 minutes using a computer for leisure
    Proportio ____ and ____

    Find the 30th percentile. Seventy percent spend more than what amount of time? (Round your answers to 2 decimal places.)

    Amount of time for individuals age 75 and over minutes
    Amount of time for individuals ages 15 to 19 minutes
