**Tracy**, Saturday, March 29, 2014 at 12:42pmI added the mean of 21 and SD of 10 and the probability is 0.9715. That is not one of my options, please help!

**Steve**, Saturday, March 29, 2014 at 4:56pmWell, it must be immediately obvious that .9715 is bogus. A score of 10 is more than a whole SD below the mean, so there is no way that P(x<10) > 1/2

When I plugged in the data, I got P(x<10) = 0.1357

Still not one of your choices. However, the closest is 0.3, since you know that the score is well below the mean.

There's a typo somewhere in the problem or the answers.

I get

.30 = P(x<15 or x>26)

...

.90 = P(x<33 or x>8)
