The commute time for Cypress College students who drive from their home to the college follows a normal distribution with a mean of 26 minutes and a standard deviation of 8 minutes. If it takes a student 15 minutes to get to school, what would the percentile ranking for this student's commute time be?

Here, μ = 26 and σ = 8.
The percentile ranking for the student's (who takes 15 minutes to get to school) the commute time be,
z = x μ σ = 15 26 8 = 1.375
Using Excel formula “=NORM.S.DIST(-1.375,TRUE)”, the percentile ranking for the student’s commute time be obtained as 0.08.

The Porsche Club of America sponsors driver education events that provide high-performance driving instruction on actual racetracks. Because safety is a primary consideration at such events, many owners elect to install roll bars in their cars. Deegan Industries manufactures two types of roll bars for Porsches. Model DRB is bolted to the car using existing holes in the car's frame. Model DRW is a heavier roll bar that must be welded to the car's frame. Model DRB requires 20 pounds of a special high alloy steel, 40 minutes of manufacturing time, and 60 minutes of assembly time. Model DRW requires 25 pounds of the special high alloy steel, 100 minutes of manufacturing time, and 40 minutes of assembly time. Deegan's steel supplier indicated that at most 40,000 pounds of the high-alloy steel will be available next quarter. In addition, Deegan estimates that 2000 hours of manufacturing time and 1600 hours of assembly time will be available next quarter. The pro?t contributions are $200 per unit for model DRB and $280 per unit for model DRW. The linear programming model for this problem is as follows:
Max 200DRB + 280DRW
s.t.
20DRB + 25DRW 40,000 Steel Available
40DRB + 100DRW ? 120,000 Manufacturing minutes
60DRB + 40DRW ? 96,000 Assembly minutes
DRB, DRW ? 0
