An executive at Westinghouse drives from his home in the suburbs near

Pittsburgh to his office in the center of the city. The driving times

can be approximated by the normal distribution,with a mean of 35 minutes

and a standard deviation of 8 minutes.

a.What percent of the days will it take him 30 minutes or less to drive

to work?

b.What percent of the days will it take him 40 minutes or more to drive

to work?

c.Explain to the executive why the probability is nearly 0 that it will

take him exactly 40 minutes to get to work.

d.The executive did not understand your answer to part c. How would you

estimate the percent of days it takes 40 minutes to drive to

work?(Hint:Within what range of values would the times be rounded to

40?)
