a). What percent of the data is between 460 and 540?

P(460<x<540)=P(-1<z<1)

=0.8413-0.1587

=0.6826

b). Find the probabilty that a value selected at random is less than 420.

P(x<420)=P(z<(420-500)/40)

=P(z<-2)

=0.0228

are these right?

You might find this applet very useful.

It eliminates the use of charts and tables, you you don't even have to convert to z-scores
