All deal with a random variable X that follows a normal probability distribution with mean equal to 37 and a standard deviation of 5.

Compute P(X < 39)

Compute P(X < 29 or X > 41)

Compute P(X > 30)

Find the 42nd percentile for this distribution.

  • statistics -

    Z = (score-mean)/SD

    Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportions/probabilities related to the Z scores.

    Either-or probabilities are found by adding the individual probabilities.

    For last Q, Start with table (.42) and insert Z score into above equation.

    PsyDAG, right on thanks
