On average, your department ships an order two hours after it is received. The distribution of times is approximately normal, the standard deviationis 15 mins. -today you handled 120 orders (empirical rule)a. how many orders would you expect to be shipped:
within 2 hours of being received –b. within 1 hour 30 mins
How many orders would you expect to NOT BE shipped after 2 hrs 30 mins.
Mean = 2 hours
Std Deviation = 15 mins or .25 hours
No of orders handled = 120
a) Number of orders shipped …
The solution determines how many orders would be expected not to be shipped after 2 hrs 30 mins.
