Assume that the average annual salary for a worker in the United States is $30,500 and that the annual salaries for Americans are normally distributed with a standard deviation equal to $6,250. Find the following:
(A) What percentage of Americans earn below $19,000?
(B) What percentage of Americans earn above $40,000?
Z = (score-mean)/SD
Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportions/percentages related to the Z scores.
