The annual precipitation for one city is normally distributed with a mean of 72 inches and a standard deviation of 3.5 inches. In 95% of the years, the precipitation in this city is between___ and ___

  • Statistics -

    From a normal distribution table, 97.5% probability corresponds to +1.96σ.

    Thus μ±1.96σ corresponds to 95% of all years.

    1.96σ = 1.96*3.5=6.86"

    Therefore 95% of the years have precipitation between 72±6.86"
