-Describe the fuel efficiency of the worst 20% of all cars.

I know that you convert 20% into decimal form to get .2 and put that number in for Invnorm to get -.84, but how do I get the fuel efficiency of the worst 20% of cars from there.

- AP Statistics -
**Reiny**, Friday, November 9, 2007 at 11:30pmI don't have a normal curve or a chart handy, so I will trust that your value of -.84 for .2 is correct.

What that means is that 20% lies from the point .84 of a standard deviation to the left of the mean.

.84(6)=5.04

so 20% of the cars will have a fuel efficiency of below 18.96 mpg
