The time necessary to assemble a discount store display is normally distributed with μ = 5 minutes and σ = 30 seconds. A large number of potential employees are timed assembling a practice display. How much time (in minutes) should the personnel manager allow the potential employees to assemble the display if the store wants only 80% of the people to complete the task?


  • statistics - ,

    Z = (score-mean)/SD

    Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportion (.8) in the largest portion and use the Z score to calculate the raw time (score). Don't forget to change to common units.
