Assume that the mean hourly cost to operate a commercial airplane follows the normal distribution with a mean of $2,225 per hour and a standard deviation of $220.

What is the operating cost for the lowest 5 percent of the airplanes?

    According to the standard bell curve and the empirical rule, the lowest 5% would be 2 standard deviations below the mean making the operating cost of the lowest 5% of airplanes equal to $1785

    Z = (score-mean)/SD

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

    For the lowest 5%, you need a Z score of -1.645.

    Insert the values in the above equation to solve for the score.
