Assume the amount of money seventh–grade students spend on food each day at school is exponentially distributed with an average of $2.50.

Which graph best describes the distribution?

**A.****B.****C.****D.**

B

Find the probability that a randomly selected seventh–grade student spends less than $4 a day on food.

**A.**0.7981**B.**0.2019**C.**0.9999**D.**0.0001

A

85% of the seventh–grade students spend more than what amount per day?

**A.**$2.12**B.**$0.75**C.**$4.74**D.**$0.41

D

The amount of time that intermediate algebra students at Leland High School spend doing their homework per day is normally distributed with a mean 1.5 hours and standard deviation 0.75 hours.

If one student is randomly chosen, what is the probability that the student does intermediate algebra homework at least 2 hours per day?

C

60% of these students spend at most how many hours doing their homework?

**A.**1.69 hours**B.**1.31 hours**C.**1.5 hours**D.**0.2533 hours

A

Llamas are excellent pack animals. It is known that the weight of supplies carried by llamas follows a normal distribution with a mean of 62.5 pounds and a standard deviation of 6 pounds.

Find the probability that the weight of supplies carried by one randomly chosen llama is between 60 and 70 pounds.

**A.**0.4441**B.**0.5559**C.**0.8944**D.**1

B

The middle 50% of weights of supplies carried by a randomly chosen llama is between _____ and _____.

**A.**0 and 62.5 pounds**B.**58.45 and 66.55 pounds**C.**56.5 and 68.5 pounds**D.**There is not enough information given.

B

Which of the following are true for the normal distribution?

**I.**More values fall close to the mean than fall far away from the mean.**II.**The mean and standard deviation cannot be the same.**III.**A change in µ causes the graph to shift to the left or right and changes the shape of the graph.**IV.**A change in s causes a change in the shape of the normal curve.

**A.**I, IV**B.**I, II, III, IV**C.**I, II, III**D.**III, IV

A

The length of time junior high school students sleep per night follows an approximate uniform distribution from seven to eleven hours. Suppose we randomly select a junior high student.

Find the probability that the randomly selected student sleeps less than 8 1/2 hours per night.

**A.**.2143**B.**0.7727**C.**0.4705**D.**0.375

B

On average, how long does a junior high school student sleep per night?

**A.**9.6 hours**B.**6.5 hours**C.**7.8 hours**D.**8.4 hours

D

We are interested in the probability that a randomly selected student sleeps less than eight hours, knowing that he/she sleeps less than ten. Which graph best depicts this situation?

**A.****B.****C.****D.**
