ii) Find the probability that a fire engine is available when needed?   

problem 5)a) A random sample of 100 recorded deaths during the past year showed an average life span of 71.8 years. Assuming a population standard deviation of 8.9 years, does this seem to indicate that mean life span today is great than 70 years? Use 0.05 level of significance.

b) Electric firm manufactures light bulbs that have lifetime that is approximately normally distributed with means of 800 hours and standard deviation of 40 hours. Test hypothesis that µ = 800 hours against alternative µ ≠ 800 hours if random sample of 30 bulbs has the average life of 788 hours. Use a 0.10 level of significance.
