I need this 2 assignment done for probability and statics. its needs to be in word document. 

Assignment 1
1. The time X (minutes) for a lab assistant to prepare the equipment for a certain
experiment is believed to have a uniform distribution with A = 20 and B = 30.
a. Write the pdf of X and sketch its graph.
b. What is the probability that preparation time exceeds 27 minutes?
c. Find the preparation mean time, then calculate the probability that preparation is
within 2 minutes of the mean time? d. For any a such that 20 < a < a + 2 < 30, what is the probability that preparation
time is between a and a + 2 minutes?
2. Let X have a uniform distribution on the interval [a, b].
a. Obtain an expression for the (100p) th percentile.
b. Compute E(X), V(X), and σ2.
c. For n a positive integer, compute E(Xn) 3. Let X be the temperature in
let Y be the temperature in at which a certain chemical reaction takes place, and
(so Y = 1.8X + 32). a. If the median of the X distribution is μ2, show that 1.8
the Y distribution. + 32 is the median of b. How is the 90th percentile of the Y distribution related to the 90th percentile of
the X distribution? Verify your conjecture.
c. More generally, if Y = aX + b, how is any particular percentile of the Y distribution
related to the corresponding percentile of the X distribution? 4. The distribution of resistance for resistors of a certain type is known to be normal, with
10% of all resistors having a resistance exceeding 10.634 ohms, and 5% having a
resistance smaller than 9.7565 ohms. What are the mean value and standard deviation of
the resistance distribution?
5. Suppose only 40% of all drivers in Florida regularly wear a seatbelt. A random sample of
500 drivers is selected. What is the probability that
a. Between 170 and 220 (inclusive) of the drivers in the sample regularly wear a
seatbelt? b. Fewer than 175 of those in the sample regularly wear a seatbelt? Assignment 2
Multiple Choice
Identify the choice that best completes the statement or answers the question.
3,500 extra calories means 1 pound of excess weight, published in a
newspaper's health section in 2005, featured a reader's question about
having gained 10 pounds over the past year, and the health columnists'
response: "Since it takes 3,500 calories over what your body needs to gain
1 pound of fat, an extra 100 calories every day can add 10 pounds in just
one year."
____ 1. If the reported relationship between excess calories and weight gain is what
scientists assume to hold universally, on average, then what notation should be used instead
of ? a. b.
c. s d.
h. r

159 1 ____ 2. Which of these is true about the confidence interval (C.I.)?
a. For large samples and explanatory values not far from their mean, it is
approximately . b. For large samples, and explanatory values not far from their mean, it is
approximately . An annual state assessment test is a standards-based, criterion-referenced
assessment used to measure a student's attainment of the academic
standards while also determining the degree to which school programs
enable students to attain proficiency of the standards. For a sample of
schools, three relationships are considered: percentage passing versus
school mean score, percentage passing versus percentage who participated
(took the test) in each school, and percentage passing versus percentage of
disadvantaged students in the school. In this exercise, you are to identify which one of the three reported
regression results corresponds to each of the three scatterplots. 95.0% PI
