The time, T minutes, spent each day by students in Amys school sending text messages may be

modelled by a normal distribution.

35% spend more than 15 minutes per day.

(6)

The number of text messages received by Amy during a fixed time interval may be modelled by

a Poisson distribution with a mean of 6 messages per hour.

(b) Find the probability that Amy will receive exactly 8 messages between 16:00 and 18:00

on a random day.

(3)

(c) Given that Amy has received at least 10 messages between 16:00 and 18:00 on a random

day, find the probability that she received 13 messages during that time.

(5)

(d) During a 5-day week, find the probability that there are exactly 3 days when Amy

receives no messages between 17:45 and 18:00.
