11Sketch Normal Models using the 68-95-99.7 Rule ACT Scores at a certain college, N(21.2, 4.4)
12Do Now Create a list in your calculator with the following numbers:
13Calculating Standard Deviation on a Calculator Put all your data into a listUnder the STAT CALC menu, select 1-VAR STATS and hit ENTERSpecify the location of your data, created a command like 1- VAR STATS L1.Hit ENTER again
16Example: This is a practice problem in your packet*** A forester measured 27 of the trees in a large wood that is up for sale. He found a mean diameter of 10.4 inches and a standard deviation of 4.7 inches. Suppose that these trees provide an accurate description of the whole forest and the normal model applies
17N(36, 4) What percent of data are between 32 and 40? What percent above the mean are between 36 and 40?What percent of data are between 28 and 44?What range contains 99.7% of data?What range contains 47.5% below the mean?Where would the top 16% of data be?What percent of data is outside 24 and 48?
18Helmet SizesThe army reports that the distribution of head circumference among male soldiers is approximately normal with a mean of inches and a standard deviation of 1.1 inches.What percent of soldiers have a head circumference greater than 23.9in?A head circumference of 23.9 inches would be what percentile?What percent of soldiers have a head circumference between and 23.9inches?What interval below the mean would contain 13.5% of soldiers?
19Driving SpeedSuppose it takes you 20 minutes, on average, to drive to school with a standard deviation of 2 minutes. Suppose a normal model is appropriate for the distribution of driving times.How often will you arrive at school in less than 22 minutes?How often will it take you more than 24 minutes?Do you think the distribution of your driving times is unimodal and symmetric in general?What does this say about the accuracy of your predictions? Explain.

21Exit TicketA company that manufactures rivets believes the shear strength (in pounds) is modeled by N(500, 50).Draw and label the normal model (just sketch the curve)Would it be safe to use these rivets in a situation requiring a shear strength of 750 pounds? Explain.About what percent of these rivets would you expect to fall below 900 pounds?Rivets are used in a variety of applications with varying shear strength requirements. What is the maximum shear strength for which you would feel comfortable approving this company rivets? Explain your reasoning.
