Q. 3

A new phone system was installed last year to help reduce the expense of personal calls that were being made by employees.

Q. 6

The number of violent crimes committed in a day possesses a distribution with a mean of 1.5 crimes per day and a standard deviation of four crimes per day.
  A random sample of 140 days was observed, and the sample mean number of crimes for the sample was calculated. The data that was collected in this experiment could be measured with a __________ random variable. A) discrete B) continuous

Q. 7

The amount of soda a dispensing machine pours into a 12 ounce can of soda follows a normal distribution with a mean of 12.39 ounces and a standard deviation of 0.26 ounce.
  The cans only hold 12.65 ounces of soda. Every
  can that has more than 12.65 ounces of soda poured into it causes a spill and the can needs to go through a
  special cleaning process before it can be sold. What is the probability a randomly selected can will need to go
  through this process?
