The number of pounds gained during pregnancy are normal with mean=30.23 and st. deviation=13.84

Determine the percent of women that gain between 20 and 30 pounds.

  • Math Help Please!!!!! -

    You have to subtract the mean from each score and divide by the standard deviation.

    This will give you two z-scores

    One for (20 -30.23)/13.84

    the other one (30 - 30.23)/13.84

    Use a standard z (normal table) to find the area under the curve between these two numbers. That will give you the percent of women in that range.
