The ages of a group of 50 women are approximately normally distributed with a mean of 47 years and a standard deviation of 6 years. One woman is randomly selected from the group, and her age is observed.

Q2.

Almost all companies utilize some type of year-end performance review for their employees. Human Resources(HR) at the university of Texas health Science Center provides guidelines for supervisors rating their subordinates. For example raters are advised to examine their ratings for a tendency to be too lenient or too harsh. According to HR, “if you have this tendency, consider using a normal distribution-10% of employees (rated) exemplary, 20% distinguished, 40% competent, 20% marginal, and 10% unacceptable.”

Suppose you are rating an employees performance on a scale of 1(lowest) to 100(highest). Also assume the ratings follow normal distribution with a mean of 50 and a standard deviation of 12. Complete parts a and b.

a)  What is the lowest rating you should give to an “exemplary” employee if you follow the University’s HR guidelines?

b)  What is the lowest rating you should give to an “competent” employee if you follow the University’s HR guidelines?
