Homework Help: Probability/Statistics

Posted by Amy on Saturday, July 11, 2009 at 2:54pm.

Using diaries for many weeks, a study on the lifestyles of visually impaired students was conducted. The students kept track of many lifestyle variables including how many hours of sleep obtained on a typical day. Researchers found that visually impaired students averaged 9.36 hours of sleep, with a standard deviation of 2.28 hours. Assume that the number of hours of sleep for these visually impaired students is normally distributed.

What is the probability that a visually impaired student gets between 6.4 and 9.41 hours of sleep?

**I took (9.41-9.36)/2.28 = .0219 and (6.41-9.36)/2.28 = -1.2982. I found their corresponding values in the normal distribution table, and I subtracted the 6.4 value from the 9.41 value. It's not right, and I don't know why.

Forty percent of students get less than how many hours of sleep on a typical day?

**I'm not really sure how to set this one up. If there's some sort of formula that I could use, that'd be great.

Thanks :)
