a) what percentage of these students have scores in the range 400 to 700?
b) There were about 1000 students with scores in the range 450650 on the Verbal SAT. About _______ of them had scores in the range 500 to 600. Fill in blanks. Explain briefly

a) Need to find P(400 < x < 700)= ?
z = (400  550)/100 = 1.5
z =(700  550)/100 = 1.5
P(400 < x < 700)= P(1.5 < z < 1.5)
= 0.8663=86.36%(Ans.)
