measured physical fitness for all high school freshmen.

During that time, the average score on a treadmill

endurance task has been μ 19.8 minutes with a

standard deviation of 7.2 minutes. Assuming that

the distribution is approximately normal, find each of

the following probabilities.

a. What is the probability of randomly selecting

a student with a treadmill time greater than

25 minutes? In symbols, p(X 25) ?

b. What is the probability of randomly selecting a

student with a time greater than 30 minutes? In

symbols, p(X 30) ?

c. If the school required a minimum time of 10 minutes

for students to pass the physical education course,

what proportion of the freshmen would fail?

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

b, c. Same process.
