Answer to Question #7904 in Statistics and Probability for James
During production in a cement plant, test cubes of cement are taken at regular intervals and their compressive strengths, in kg m-2, determined. Analysis of data over a long time has shown that the compressive strength of these samples is normally distributed with a mean 0.0468 kg m-2 and a standard deviation 1.6 × 10-3 kgm-2. Calculate the probability that a randomly chosen sample has a compressive strength below 0.045 kg m-2.
I am writing to express my gratitude for all the help this website offered to me in times of need. I believe this website is not a "cheating" source for "lazy" students, but an important source for those of us who are burdened with more than we can bear, have little to no facilities to handle the stress and workload, and are in serious need of help given at an affordable price. Thank you so very much to all those involved with this website who have helped students like me in desperate need.
