Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the probability related to that Z score.

a)Without computing the value of any of these measures, which of them would you guess would give you more information about this distribution: range or standard deviation?

b) Considering the difficulty and time of computing each of the measures you reviewed in part (c), which one would you suggest is better?

(d) What will cause you to change your mind about your choice?
