An Example of {AND, OR, Given that} Using a Normal Distribution By Henry Mesa

2
Consider the following problem. The length of human pregnancy in days, has an average of 266 days, and a standard deviation of 16 days. The distribution is normal. Let the random variable X denote the length of a human pregnancy.

3
Let event A be a pregnancy lasts between 266 days and 298 days. Let event B be a pregnancy lasts between 250 days 282 days. Let event C be a pregnancy lasts 234 days or less.

Let the random variable X denote the length of a human pregnancy. Let event A be a pregnancy lasts between 266 days and 298 days. Let event B be a pregnancy lasts between 250 days 282 days. Let event C be a pregnancy lasts 234 days or less. 1. Are events A and B disjoint? No, they share the common days 266 to 282.

Consider the following problem. The length of human pregnancy in days, has an average of 266 days, and a standard deviation of 16 days. The distribution is normal. Let the random variable X denote the length of a human pregnancy. Let event A be a pregnancy lasts between 266 days and 298 days. Let event B be a pregnancy lasts between 250 days 282 days. Let event C be a pregnancy lasts 234 days or less. 3. Calculate P(B OR C) P(X < 234 OR 250 < X < 282) = = P(Z < -2) + P( -1< Z< 0 ) = = Using rule

Consider the following problem. The length of human pregnancy in days, has an average of 266 days, and a standard deviation of 16 days. The distribution is normal. Let the random variable X denote the length of a human pregnancy. Let event A be a pregnancy lasts between 266 days and 298 days. Let event B be a pregnancy lasts between 250 days 282 days. Let event C be a pregnancy lasts 234 days or less. 5. Calculate P(A AND B) P(250 < X < 282 AND 266 < X < 298) = = P(0 < Z < 1) = P(266 < X < 282)

12
Consider the following problem. The length of human pregnancy in days, has an average of 266 days, and a standard deviation of 16 days. The distribution is normal. Let the random variable X denote the length of a human pregnancy. Let event A be a pregnancy lasts between 266 days and 298 days. Let event B be a pregnancy lasts between 250 days 282 days. Let event C be a pregnancy lasts 234 days or less. 6. Calculate P(B AND C) P(X < 234 AND 250 < X < 282) =0 There is no chance that one observation can meet both criteria.

13
Consider the following problem. The length of human pregnancy in days, has an average of 266 days, and a standard deviation of 16 days. The distribution is normal. Let the random variable X denote the length of a human pregnancy. Let event A be a pregnancy lasts between 266 days and 298 days. Let event B be a pregnancy lasts between 250 days 282 days. Let event C be a pregnancy lasts 234 days or less. 7. Calculate P(A | B) Given that the pregnancy lasted between 250 and 282 days, there is a 50 % chance that this particular pregnancy lasted between 266 and 298 days. The new whole/sample space. = 0.5
