Question
Be quick! Avoiding an accident when driving can de-
pend on reaction time. That time, measured from the mo-
ment the driver first sees the danger until he or she steps
on the brake pedal, is thought to follow a Normal model
with a mean of 1.5 seconds and a standard deviation of
0.18 seconds.
a) Use the 68–95–99.7 Rule to draw the Normal model.
b) Write a few sentences describing driver reaction times.
c) What percent of drivers have a reaction time less than
1.25 seconds?
d) What percent of drivers have reaction times between
1.6 and 1.8 seconds?
e) What is the interquartile range of reaction times?
f) Describe the reaction times of the slowest 1/3 of all
drivers.
