Engineers want to design seats in commercial aircraft so that they are wide enough to fit 99% of all males. (Accommodating 100% of males would require very wide seats that would bemuch too expensive.) Men have hip breadths that are normally distributed with a mean of 14.8 in. and a standard deviaof 1.1 in. Find Pog. That is, find the hip breadth for men thatseparates the smallest 99% from the largest 196.The hip breadth for men that separates the smallest 99% from the largest 1% is Peg-. in.(Round to one decimal place as needed.)

Step 1

Calculation:

Let X denote the hip breadth of a randomly selected man. For men, the distribution of hip breadths is normal, with parameters, mean µ = 14.8 in. and standard deviation σ = 1.1 in.

The value P99 is the hip breadth, ...
