Round your answers to 3 decimal places (e.g. 98.765). (a) Upper P left-parenthesis Upper X greater-than 80right-parenthesis equals (b) (c) Upper P left-parenthesis 60 less-than Upper X less-than-or-equal-to 68 right-parenthesis equals

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:Step-by-step explanation:Given that X has a Poisson distribution with a mean of 64.We know in Poisson distribution mean = varianceHence X will be normal after approximation as X is N(64,8)Without continuity correction we find these by converting to Z score and using std normal distribution table.a) [tex]P(X>80) = P(Z>\frac{80-64}{8} )\\=P(Z>2)\\=0.5-0.4772\\=0.0223[/tex]b) [tex]P(60<X<68) = P(|x-64|<4) = P(\frac{|x-64|}{8} <0.5)\\=P(|Z|<0.5)\\= 2(0.1915)\\=0.3830[/tex]
