147 137 130 126 140
138 144 132 132 138

1b. In the context of this situation, interpret the Median, Q1, and Q3.

2. JR Trucking buys tires from three suppliers: Goodyear, Michelin, and Bridgestone. Data on the last 1,000 tires that were purchased are described in the table below.
Defective Not Defective Total
Goodyear 5 495 500
Michelin 6 294 300
Bridgestone 10 190 200
Total 21 979 1000
If you choose a tire at random, then find the probability that the tire
b. was made by Goodyear and was defective.
c. was not defective, given that the tire was made by Bridgestone. (Points : 18)

3. (TCO B) DCW Chemical is planning to implement an acceptance sampling plan for raw materials. A random sample of 22 batches from a large shipment (having a large number of batches) is selected. If two or more of the 22 batches fail to meet specifications, then the entire shipment is returned. Otherwise, the shipment is accepted.
In a sample of 22 batches from a population that is 1% defective (1% of the batches fail to meet specifications), find the probability that
a. two or more batches fail to meet specifications.
b. exactly two batches fail to meet specifications.
c. fewer than two batches fail to meet specifications. (Points : 18)

4. (TCO B) Pharmacies continually monitor their prescription filling process. A local pharmacy has noted that the time to fill a prescription for a generic antibiotic is normally distributed with a mean of 9.3 minutes and a standard deviation of 1.8 minutes.
a. Find the probability that a prescription for a generic antibiotic takes less than 10 minutes to fill.
b. Find the probability that a prescription for a generic antibiotic takes between 7 and 9 minutes to fill.
c. The slowest 10% of prescription fills result in a special discount to the customer. How long must a prescription fill for a generic antibiotic take in order to qualify for this discount? (Points : 18)

8. (TCO D) A manufacturer of athletic footwear claims that the mean life of his product will exceed 50 hours. A random sample of 36 shoes leads to the following results in terms of useful life.
Sample Size = 36 shoes
Sample Mean = 52.3 hours
Sample Standard Deviation = 9.6 hours
Does the sample data provide evidence to conclude that the manufacturer’s claim is correct (using ? = .10)? Use the hypothesis testing procedure outlined below..
a. Formulate the null and alternative hypotheses.

h. Does the sample data provide evidence to conclude that the manufacturer’s claim is correct (using ? = .10)? (Points : 24)
1. (TCO E) An airline plans to initiate service at an airport in a city of approximately 500,000 people. To determine staffing requirements, officials for the airline take advantage of the sample survey data on the relationship between the number of flights per week and the number of employees for 30 airlines at various airports in cities that are similar in size (approximately 300,000 to 700,000). The data is found below.

1. (TCO E) The management of an international hotel chain is in the process of evaluating possible sites for a new hotel on a beach resort. As part of the analysis, management is interested in evaluating the relationship between the distance between a hotel and the beach, (Distance, X1 in miles), the number of golf courses on the premises (Golf, X2), and the average occupancy rate (Rate, Y as a %). A sample of 14 existing resort hotels is selected yielding the following results.
