Question

Tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) warn the driver when the tire pressure of the vehicle is 28% below the target pressure. Suppose the target tire pressure of a certain car is 30 psi (pounds per square inch.)

(a) At what psi will the TPMS trigger a warning for this car?

(b) Suppose the tire pressure is a normally distributed random variable with a standard deviation equal to 2psi. If the car’s average tire pressure is on target, what is the probability that the TPMS will trigger a warning?

Answer:Step-by-step explanation:a)The pressure level that will trigger a warning is

30 – 30*0.28 = 21.6 psi

b) The probability that the TPMS will trigger warning at 21.6 psi, given that tire pressure has a normal distribution with average of 30 psi and standard deviation of 2 psi is:

where x = 21.6, μ = 30 and σ = 2
