Question

The age of children in kindergarten on the first day of school is uniformly distributed between 4.87 and 5.85 years old. A first time kindergarten child is selected at random. Round answers to 4 decimal places if possible.

1. The mean of this distribution is
2. The standard deviation is
3. The probability that the the child will be older than 5 years old?
4. The probability that the child will be between 5.17 and 5.57 years old is
5. If such a child is at the 65th percentile, how old is that child? years old.

Step 1

A uniform distribution has an equal probability for all the outcomes of the random variable, that is, it has a constant probability. A uniform distribution is defined over the range (a, b) where a is the smallest value and b is the largest value of the distribution. The values, (a, b) are the parameters of the uniform distribution.

Step 2

(3)

Consider, X be the random variable which represents the age of the children in kindergarten on the first day of school is uniformly distributed with parameters a= 4.87 and b=5.85.

The probability that children will be older than 5 years can be calculated as: help_outlineImage Transcriptionclose5.85 1 P(X 5) 5.85 4.87 1 15.85 0.98 1 (5.85-5) 0.98 =0.867 fullscreen
