A cement truck delivers mixed cement to a large construction site. Let x represent the cycle time in minutes for the truck to leave the construction site, go back to the cement plant, fill up, and return to the construction site with another load of cement. From past experiences, it is known that the mean cycle time is μ = 46 minutes with σ = 9 minutes. The x distribution is approximately normal. What is the probability that the cycle time will exceed 61 minutes, given that it has exceeded 44 minutes?
A certain company makes 12-volt car batteries. After many years of product testing, the company knows that the average life of a battery is normally distributed, with a mean of 50 months and a standard deviation of 9 months. If the company does not want to make refunds for more than 10% of its batteries under the full-refund guarantee policy, for how long should the company guarantee the batteries (to the nearest month)?
A person’s level of blood glucose and diabetes are closely related. Let x be a random variable measured in milligrams of glucose per deciliter (1/10 of a liter) of blood. Suppose that after a 12-hour fast, the random variable x will have a distribution that is approximately normal with mean μ = 73 and standard deviation of σ = 20. What is the probability that, for an adult after a 12-hour fast, x is more than 85?

Assume that about 40% of all U.S. adults try to pad their insurance claims. Suppose that you are the director of an insurance adjustment office. Your office has just received 108 insurance claims to be processed in the next few days. What is the probability that fewer than 40 of the claims have been padded?
