what is the probability by Pr( X ≥ 8) years where X is normally distributed with mean 5.24 and sd = 1.90?


HELP!!!
thank you!

    complete this:


    We estimate the probability by Pr( X ≥ 8) years where X is normally distributed with mean 5.24 and sd = 1.90.
    Assuming normal distribution we want prob that x >=8
    P(x>=8) = P(Z >= (8 - 5.24)/1.90) = P(Z >= 1.45) = 1 - P(Z<1.45) =

    use a z-score table to find the portion of the population below 1.45 sd above the mean

    looks like about .93

    so prob X ≥ 8 is ... 1 - .93
