a) What is the distribution of X?

b) What is the probability that a randomly selected record shows a birth weight less than 5 pounds?

c) What is the probability that a randomly selected record shows a birth weight greater than eleven pounds?

d) What is the probability that a randomly selected record shows a birth weight between 6 and 9 pounds
