Suppose that the number of insects captured in a trap on
different nights is normally distributed with mean 2950 and standard deviation 550.
a) What is the probability of capturing between 2500 and 3500 insects?
b) Suppose that we change the location of a trap whenever it captures a
number of insects that fall in the lowest 5%. If a trap was relocated on a
given night, what is the maximum number of insects that it captured?
c) What is the probability of capturing between 2600 and 2850 insects?
d) Suppose that we call an exterminator whenever a trap captures a number of insects that fall in the highest 10%. If an exterminator was called on a given night, what is the minimum number of insects that the trap captured?
