4 Based on a traffic survey, the mean and standard deviation of time taken for UTM
students who drive to college to find parking spaces are 9.0 minutes and 2.5
minutes respectively. Assuming the time taken by each students to find a parking
space are normally distributed, find:
Berdasarkan satu bancian lalu lintas, min dan sisihan piawai bagi masa yang
diambil oleh pelajar UTM mendapatkan ruang parkir kereta di Universiti
masing-masingnya ialah 9.0 minit dan 2.5 minit. Dengan menganggap bahawa
masa yang diambil oleh pelajar untuk mendapatkan ruang parkir kereta adalah
bertabur secara normal, cari:

i. The probability (or proportion) of the students take more than 15 minutes to
find a parking space. [1 mark]
Kebarangkalian (atau proportion) pelajar mengambil masa lebih dari 15
minit untuk mendapatkan ruang parkir. [1 markah]

ii. The probability (or proportion) of the students take less than 5 minutes to
find a parking space. [1 mark]
Kebarangkalian (atau proportion) pelajar mengambil masa kurang dari 5
minit untuk mendapatkan ruang parkir. [1 markah]

iii. The probability (or proportion) of the students take between 7 and 10
minutes to find a parking space. [3 marks]
Kebarangkalian (atau proportion) pelajar mengambil masa antara 7 hingga
10 minit untuk mendapatkan ruang parkir. [3 markah]

iv. How many minutes represent the 90th percentile? [2 marks]


Berapa minit masa diambil untuk mewakili ‘90th percentile’? [2 markah]

v. How many minutes represent the 45th percentile? [3 marks]

generate a mean CGPA of 3.75 with standard deviation 4.00 among
undergraduates. A sample of 36 undergraduates went through the program
and their sample mean of CGPA was 3.25.
