Suppose that the weights of airline passenger bags are normally distributed with a mean of 48.08 pounds and a standard deviation of 3.13 pounds.

A)Let X represent the weight of a randomly selected bag. For what value of c is P(E(X) - c < X < E(X) + c)=0.84? Give your answer to four decimal places.

B)Assume the weights of individual bags are independent. What is the expected number of bags out of a sample of 16 that weigh less than 50 lbs? Give your answer to four decimal places.
