Statistical proble: Andre is fearless circus performer who gets shot from a special cannon during the grand finale of the show and is supposed to land on a safety net at the other side of the arena. The distance he travels varies, but is normally distributed with a mean of 150 feet and a standard deviation of 10 feet. The landing net is 30 feet long.

Q: To maximize the probability of landing on the net, how far away from the cannon should he position the nearest edge of the net?

Step 1

**Introduction:**

Let *X* denote the distance (feet) travelled by Andre during a randomly selected performance. Then, *X* has a normal distribution with mean, *μ* = 150 and standard deviation, *σ* = 10.

The normal distribut...
