Homework Help: Statistics

Posted by Lyndon on Monday, July 26, 2010 at 7:02pm.

For a normal distribution with a mean of m = 80 and a standard deviation of s = 20, find the proportion of the population corresponding to each of the following scores.

a. Scores greater than 85
b. Scores less than 100
c. Scores between 70 and 90

I believe this is the correct formula to start with but am unclear on how to finish it. Any help would be appreciated.

a. z = X-m= 8580 = 5 = 0.25
s 20 20

b. z = X-m= 10080 = 20 = 1.00
s 20 20

c. z = X-m= 7080 = -10 = -0.25
s 20 20
z = X-m= 9080 = 10 = 0.50
s 20 20
