The customer service center in a large New York department store has determined that the

amount of time spent with a customer about a complaint follows a normal distribution, with a

mean of 9.3 minutes and a standard deviation of 2.5 minutes.

Let X = amount of time spent with a customer about a complaint (in minutes).

a) 𝜇 =

b) 𝜎 =

c) What is the standard score (or z-score) for x = 4.3 minutes? Answer: z =

d) What is the standard score (or z-score) for x = 14.3 minutes? Answer: z =

e) Based on the empirical rule, approximately what percent of customers spent between 4.3

minutes and 14.3 minutes with the customer service center regarding a complaint?

Question 2

Let X represent the cost of a Smart LED TV. Which probability expression represents the

If you randomly select one ball, do not replace it in the box, and then, select a second ball,

what is the probability that both balls are odd?

Question 6

(Write the answer as a decimal rounded to the nearest hundredth.)

Question 8

The mean time taken to learn the basics of a word processor by a group of students is 200
