a. Find the probability that gestation length is between 275.5 and 276.5 days. (This estimates the probability that a woman has her baby 4 days earlier than the due date)

b. Find probability that gestation length is between 258.5 and 259.5 days. (This estimates the probability that a woman has her baby 21 days earlier than the due date).

c. Find the probability that gestation length is between 254.5 and 255.5 days. (This estimates the probability that a woman has her baby 25 days earlier than the due date.

d. The Chance article referenced a newspaper story about three sisters who all gave birth on the same day (March 11, 1998). Karralee had her baby 4 days early: Marrianne had her baby 21 days early: and Jennifer had her baby 25 days early. Use the results, parts a-c estimate the probability that all three woman have their babies 4, 21, 25 days early, respectively. Assume the births are independent events.

**Ken**, Monday, March 18, 2013 at 4:30amWe have many people who change their names in here. There is NO way Ms. Sue could know that you are posting for two students, and you have presented with 3 names. It is not incumbent upon her to have to guess, or ask you anything. You did literally change names. She deserves an apology from you.

I wish I could help you with your question, but Stats are way beyond my injured brain's abilities. All I can suggest is, look at the article in question, it may have the probability numbers for d. in it, so your son can have an idea of how big it is and if his calculation is achieving a similar result.
