A person’s blood glucose level and diabetesare closely related. Let x be a
random variable measured in milligrams of glucose per deciliter (1/10 of a liter)
of blood. After a 12hour fast, the random variable x will have a distribution
that is approximately normal with mean μ=85 and standard deviation σ=25.
After 50 years of age, both the mean and the standard deviation tend to increase.
What is the probability that, for an adult (under 50 years old) after 12hour
fast,
(a) x is more than 60?
(b) x is less than 110?
(c) x is between 60 and 110?
(d) x is greater than 140 (borderline diabetes starts at 140)?

Z = (score  mean)/SD
Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportions related to the Z scores found.
