Hey bob123.
What is the variance or standard error for the mileage? (You need that to get the percentile)
Given:
Average value of gas mileage for commuter vans is: 18 mi/gal
Find:
What gas mileage would represent the 90th percentile if the average is 18 mi/gal?
Solution:
So far I have found the corresponding z-score for 90% to be 1.28. However I am having difficulty with the problem because it does not give standard deviation.
All help will be appreciated. Thank you.
