Question

The durability of a tire of a certain brand is a Normal random variable with an average of 64,000 km and a standard deviation of 9,000 km. Assuming independence between tires, what is the probability that the 4 tires on a car will last more than 58,000 km?

Standardize the value of 58,000 km by subtracting the mean and dividing by the standard deviation. This gives us a z-score, which represents how many standard deviations the value is from the mean. The z-score for 58,000 km is given by: z = (58,000 - 64,000) / 9,000 ≈ -0.67 The probability corresponding to z = -0.67 is approximately 0.7475. This means that there is a 74.75% chance that a single tire will last more than 58,000 km. Assuming independence between tires, we can simply raise the single-tire probability to the power of 4 to find this: P(all 4 tires > 58,000 km) = (0.7475)^4 ≈ 0.3122 So, there is approximately a 31.22% chance that all 4 tires on a car will last more than 58,000 km.

You are planning to buy a car worth $20,000. Which of the two deals described below would you choose, both with a 48-month term? (NB: estimate the monthly payment of each offer). i) the dealer offers to take 10% off the price, then lend you the balance at an annual percentage rate (APR) of 9%, monthly compounding. ii) the dealer offers to lend you $20,000 (i.e., no discount) at an APR of 3%, monthly compounding.

User One of the applications of the derivative of a function is its use in Physics, where a function that at every instant t associates the number s(t), this function s is called the clockwise function of the movement. By deriving the time function we obtain the velocity function at time t, denoted by v(t). A body has a time function that determines its position in meters at time t as S(t)=t.³√t+2.t . Present the speed of this body at time t = 8 s.
