Question

How do you solve this problem?

Based on the model

N(11571157,8787)

describing steer weights, what are the cutoff values fora) the highest 10% of the weights?

b) the lowest 20% of the weights?

c) the middle 40% of the weights?

��a) The cutoff weight for the highest 10% of the steer weights is _______

pounds.

pounds.

Step 1

(a)

The cutoff weight for the highest 10% of the steer weights is obtained as follows:

Step 2

Thus, the cutoff weight for the highest 10% of the steer weights is **1,268.36** pounds.

(b)

The cutoff weight for the lowest 20% of the steer weights is obtained as follows:

Step 3

Thus, the cutoff weight for the lowest 20% of the steer weights is **1,083.92** pounds.
