Suppose that the waiting time for a license plate renewal at a local office
of a state motor vehicle department has been found to be normally
distributed with a mean of 29 minutes and a standard deviation of 6
minutes. Suppose that in an effort to provide better service to the public

discount. What number of minutes do they need to wait to receive the
discount
