A population of values has a normal distribution with μ=198.8 and σ=69.2. You intend to draw a random sample of size n=147.
Find the probability that a sample of size n=147 is randomly selected with a mean between 184 and 205.1.
P(184<M<205.1)=?

The mean is 198.8, standard deviation is 69.2, and sample size is 147.
The probability that a sample of size \(\displaystyle{n}={147}\) is randomly selected with a mean between 184 and 205.1 is,
\(\displaystyle{P}{\left({184}{<}{M}{<}{205.1}\right)}={P}{\left({\frac{{{184}-{198.8}}}{{{\left({\frac{{{69.2}}}{{\sqrt{{{147}}}}}}\right)}}}}{<}{\frac{{{M}-\mu}}{{{\left({\frac{{\sigma}}{{\sqrt{{{n}}}}}}\right)}}}}{<}{\frac{{{205.1}-{198.8}}}{{{\left({\frac{{{69.2}}}{{\sqrt{{{147}}}}}}\right)}}}}\right)}\)
\(\displaystyle={P}{\left({\frac{{-{14.8}}}{{{5.70775}}}}{<}{z}{<}{\frac{{{6.3}}}{{{5.7075}}}}\right)}\)
\(\displaystyle={P}{\left(-{2.593}{<}{z}{<}{1.104}\right)}\)
\(\displaystyle={P}{\left({z}{<}{1.104}\right)}-{P}{\left({z}{<}-{2.593}\right)}\)
The probability of z less than 1.104 can be obtained using the excel formula “=NORM.S.DIST(1.104,TRUE)”. The probability value is 0.8652.
The probability of z less than –2.593 can be obtained using the excel formula “=NORM.S.DIST(–2.593,TRUE)”. The probability value is 0.0048.
The required probability value is,
\(\displaystyle{P}{\left({184}{<}{M}{<}{205.1}\right)}={P}{\left({z}{<}{1.104}\right)}-{P}{\left({z}{<}-{2.593}\right)}\)
\(\displaystyle={0.8652}−{0.0048}={0.8604}\)
Thus, the probability that a sample of size \(\displaystyle{n}={147}\) is randomly selected with a mean between 184 and 205.1 is 0.8604.

(1 point) A breathalyser test is used by police in an area to determine whether a driver has an excess of alcohol in their blood. The device is not totally reliable: 7 % of drivers who have not consumed an excess of alcohol give a reading from the breathalyser as being above the legal limit, while 10 % of drivers who are above the legal limit will give a reading below that level. Suppose that in fact 14 % of drivers are above the legal alcohol limit, and the police stop a driver at random. Give answers to the following to four decimal places.

Part a)
What is the probability that the driver is incorrectly classified as being over the limit?


Part b)
What is the probability that the driver is correctly classified as being over the limit?


Part c)
Find the probability that the driver gives a breathalyser test reading that is over the limit.


Part d)
Find the probability that the driver is under the legal limit, given the breathalyser reading is also below the limit.
