1. The mean price per ton of grapefruit produced in the United States is \$87.76 with a standard deviation of \$23.87. The mean price per ton of grapes used in wine production in the United States is \$125.98 with a standard deviation of \$31.44. Assume the price per ton of both products is normally distributed.

a. A grapefruit producer in Queen Creek, AZ sold his crop for \$92.20 per ton. How many standard deviations above the mean is his price?

b. A vineyard in Ukiah, CA sold his cabernet grapes for \$131.52 per ton. How many standard deviations above the mean was his price?

c. Relatively speaking, who got a better price for his crop? Justify your answer

2. The heart rates for puppies are normally distributed, with a mean heart rate of 180 beats per minute (60-160 beats per minute for most adult dogs) with a standard deviation of 6 bpm.

a. What percentage of puppies will have heart rates of less than 187 bpm?

b. What percentage of puppies will have heart rates between 175 bpm and 187 bpm?

c. If 500 puppies are examined, how many would you expect to have a heart rate of less than 187 bpm?

d. 10% of all puppies will have a heart rate greater than what value?
