Assume that females have pulse rates that are normally distributed with a mean of 74. 0 beats per minute and a standarddeviation of 12.5 beats per minute. If 1 adult female is randomly selected, find the probability that her pulse rate is greaterthan 70 beats per minute.

Given: \(\displaystyle\mu={74.0}\)
\(\displaystyle\sigma={12.5}\)
The standardized score is the value x decreased by the mean and then divided by the standard deviation. \(\displaystyle{z}={\frac{{{x}-\mu}}{{\sigma}}}={\frac{{{70}-{74.0}}}{{{12.5}}}}\approx-{0.32}\)
Determine the corresponding probability using the normal probability table in the appendix: \(\displaystyle{P}{\left({X}{>}{70}\right)}={P}{\left({Z}\succ{0.32}\right)}={1}-{P}{\left({Z}{<}-{0.32}\right)}={1}-{0.3745}={0.6255}\)

Hypothesis Testing Review
For each problem below, simply identify the null and alternative hypotheses. Use appropriate notation/symbols. You do not have to run any hypothesis tests, although it's good practice and I'll post answers for all of them.
1) A simple random sample of 44 men from a normally distributed population results in a standard deviation of 10.7 beats per minute. The normal range of pulse rates of adults is typically given as 60 to 100 beats per minute. If the range rule of thumb is applied to that normal range, the result is a standard deviation of 10 beats per minute. Use the sample results with a 0.10 significance level to test the claim that pulse rates of men have a standard deviation equal to 10 beats per minute.
2) In 1997, a survey of 880 households showed that 145 of them use e-mail. Use those sample results to test the claim that more than 15% of households use e-mail. Use a 0.05 significance level.

Assume that adults have IQ scores that are normally distributed with a mean of 100 and a standard deviation of 15. (Hint: Draw a graph in each case.) Find the probability that a randomly selected adult has an IQ between 90 and 110 (referred to as the normal range).

Assume that when adults with smartphones are randomly selected, 54% use them in meetings or classes (based on data from an LG Smartphone survey).
If 20 adult smartphone users are randomly selected, find the probability that exactly 15 of them use their smartphones in meetings or classes.

The college physical education department offered an advanced first aid course last semester. The scores on the comprehensive final exam were normally distributed, and the z scores for some of the students are shown below:
Robert, 1.10 Juan, 1.70 Susan, -2.00
Joel, 0.00 Jan, -0.80 Linda, 1.60
Which of these students scored above the mean?

A local firm manufactures LED products that have a lifespan that is approximately normally distributed with a std. dev. of 30 hours. If a sample of 30 LED products has an average lifespan of 780 hours, find a \(\displaystyle{96}\%\) confidence interval for the population mean of all LED products produced by this firm.
Choose 2 answers in nearest unit (ones) or in whole number.
Example, if your answer is \(\displaystyle{888.83}\leq\mu\leq{899.56}\), choose 889 and 900.
\(\begin{array}{|c|c|}\hline 775 & 773 & 807 & 797 & 791 & 769 & 789 & 768 & 805 & 763 & 771 & 792 \\ \hline \end{array}\)
