Question

A random number generator picks a number from 15 to 60 in a uniform manner. Round answers to 4 decimal places when possible.

  1. The mean of this distribution is 
     
  2. The standard deviation is 
     
  3. The probability that the number will be exactly 57 is P(x = 57) = 
  4. The probability that the number will be between 29 and 35 is P(29 < x < 35) = 
  5. The probability that the number will be larger than 40 is P(x > 40) = 
  6. P(x > 29 | x < 51) = 
  7. Find the 80th percentile. 
  8. Find the minimum for the upper quartile.
