If light bulbs have lives that are normally distributed with a mean of
2500 hours and a standard deviation of 500 hours, what percentage of
light bulbs have a life less than 2500 hours?
A. About 25%
B. About 50%
C. About 75%
D. About 68%

Answer B

  1. PsyDAG

    Z = (score-mean)/SD

    Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportion/probability for the Z score. Multiply by 100.

  2. PsyDAG

    Z = (score-mean)/SD

    Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportion/probability for the Z score. Multiply by 100.

    However, if you realize that the mean and median are the same in a normal distribution, you won't need to go through all that work.

  3. PsyDAG

    Sorry, I didn't see your answer. You are right.
