Suitable Model Fit

The problems need to be done in minitab, and have to include ordered data, rank, (xi-.5/n), z, zi

MAT 332

Problem : Thirty measurements of the time - to - failure of a critical component in an electronics assembly are recorded. Determine which probability density model-Normal, lognormal, or Weibull-appears to provide the more suitable fit to the data.
