FINAL EXAMINATION: AUGUST 2016 SESSION

Instructions: This paper consists of FIVE (5) questions. Answer any FOUR (4) questions in the
answer booklet provided. All questions carry equal marks.

Question 1

(a) An electronic company produces a storage console. It is important to control the time x
in seconds that the console takes for its lower storage component door to open
completely. Thus, a sample of five consoles is selected randomly twice a day from the
production line. Table Q.1(a) below lists ten sample average opening times xi and the
corresponding sample ranges of opening times Ri for the consoles in a 5-day-week.

below. The costs of the materials used to build the base, the cylindrical body and the lid
of the oil container are RM30/m2, RM30/m2 and RM20/m2 respectively.

(b) The TIV Telephone Company provides long-distance telephone services in an area.
According to the company’s records, the average length of all long-distance calls placed

check if the mean length  of the current long-distance calls is different from 12.44
minutes. A sample of 150 such calls placed through this company produced a mean
length x of 13.71 minutes. The standard deviation  of all such calls is 2.65 minutes.
