iii.       (ii) If a trainee is chosenat random, find the probability that he scores at least one goal.            [5 marks]

(b) A survey on body-mass is done on a group of students. The mass of a student has a normal distribution with
a mean of 50 kg and a standard deviation of 15 kg.
(i) If a student is chosen at random, calculate the probability that his mass is less than 41 kg.
(ii) Given that 12% of the students have a mass of more than m kg, find the value of m.                  [5 marks]

SPM 2003:
(a) Senior citizens make up 20% of the population of a settlement.
(i)    If 7 people are randomly selected from the settlement, find the probability that at least two of them are
senior citizens.
iv.       (ii)   If the variance of the senior citizens is 128, what is the populations of the settlement?       [5 marks]

(b) The mass of the workers in a factory is normally distributed with a mean of 67.86 kg and a variance of
42.25 kg2. 200 of the workers in the factory weigh between 50 kg and 70 kg.
Find the total number of workers in the factory.                                                        [5 marks]
