The mean and standard deviation of the forecast errors for both types;of analysts are shown is the table to the right. Assume that the distribution;of forecast errors are approximately normally distributed.;a.;Find the probability that a buy-side analyst has a forecast error of + 2.01 or;higher;b.;Find the probability that a sell-side analyst has a forecast error of + 2.01 or;higher;14. The mean gas mileage for a hybrid car;is 57 miles per gallon. Suppose that the gasoline mileage is approximately;normally distributed with a standard deviation of 3.5 miles per gallon.;a.;What is the probability that a randomly selected hybrid gets more than 62 miles;per gallon?;b.;What is the probability that a randomly selected hybrid gets 50 miles per gallon;or less?;c.;What is the probability that a randomly selected hybrid gets between 57 and 62;miles per gallon?;d.;What is the probability that a randomly selected hybrid gets less than 46 miles;per gallon?;15. Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP);was originally designed to establish signaling links for stationary networks.;RSVP was applied to mobile wireless technology. A simulation study revealed;that the transmission delay (measured is milliseconds) of an RSVP linked;wireless device has an approximate normal distribution with mean ?=46.5;milliseconds and? = 8.5 milliseconds.;Complete;part a and b.
