among coffee drinkers, men drink a mean of 3.2 cups per day with a standard deviation of 0.8 cups. Assume the number of coffee drinks per day follows a normal distribution.
a. What proportion drinks 2 cups per day or more?
b. What proportion drink no more than 4 cups per day?
c. If the top 5% of coffee drinkers are considered heavy coffee drinkers, what is the minimum number of cups consumed by a heavy coffee drinker? find the 95th percentile.
Z = (score-mean)/SD
Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportions related to the Z scores.
For c, work backwards from the Z score for that proportion.
