Probability and distribution

According to the highway department in Praire City, Idaho, the number of passengers per care (including driver) commuting on highway 57 per evening is defined by the probability distribution Number of Passengers  X Probability P(x)1  0.35 2  0.35 3  0.154  0.10 5  0.05For this probability distributiona) Identify the values of the random variableb) Construct a probability histogram and determine its shapec) Verify that the sum of all the probabilities is oned) What is the expected number of passengers each evening?e) Calculate the standard deviationf) How unusual is it for a car to contain more than 2 passengers? Explain.If the distribution of the annual family income in New York City is normally distributed with a mean of \$77,100 and standard deviation of \$15,000, then determine the followinga) The proportion of families with incomes less than \$55,000b) The percent of families with incomes between \$65,000 and \$95,000.c) The probability that a family selected at random living in New York City will have an annual family income greater than \$125,000.d) If there are an estimated 3 million families living in New York City, then how many families would be expected to have family incomes greater than \$100,000?e) The family income that represents the 8th decilef) The family income that represents the 1st quartileg) The family income that represents the 65th percentile.h) The family income that cuts off the lowest 20,000 incomes/i) The family income that cuts off the highest 100,000 incomesj) If the upper middle incomes are defined as those families earning in the upper 20% of all family income. Find the minimum family income in New York City that is considered upper middle class.Recently, it was reported that a baby born in 2014 is expected to live to a mean age of 79 years. If the standard deviation for this population is 10 year, use the Central Limit Theorem to answer questions about sampling distribution of the mean formed by taking from the population of babies born is 2014, all possible random samples of size 100.A) Find μx̄B) Determine σx̅C) Can this sampling distribution of the mean be approximated by a normal distributionD) IF the population of life expectancies for those born in 2014 is approximately normal, what is the probability that a baby born in 2014 will live to: Atleast 78? At leave age 82?E) If a random sample of 100 babies born in 2014 were selected, what is the probability that these babies will live to at least a mean age of 78? To at least a mean age of 82?F) why are the answers to parts (d) and (e) different?
