Expert Solution

a.

To determine

Construct a probability distribution for the job satisfaction score of a senior executive.

### Explanation of Solution

Calculation:

The data represents the percent frequency distributions of job satisfaction scores for a sample of information systems (IS) senior executives and middle managers. The range of scores is from 1 (very dissatisfied) to 5 (very satisfied).

Here, the total number of IS senior executives is 100. The corresponding probabilities of the random variable x are obtained by dividing the percentage of IS senior executives by total number of IS senior executives.

That is, f(x)=fN

For example, f(1)=0

Expert Solution

b.

To determine

Construct a probability distribution for the job satisfaction score of a middle manager.

Expert Solution

c.

To determine

Find the probability that a senior executive will report a job satisfaction score of 4 or 5.

Expert Solution

d.

To determine

Find the probability that a middle manager is very satisfied.

Expert Solution

e.

To determine

Compare the overall job satisfaction of senior executives and middle managers.
