If the student ratings of the overall effectiveness of professors is normally distributed with a mean of 5 and a standard deviation of 1.75, what proportion of the professors will be expected to be rated below 2.55?

  1. MsPi_3.14159265

    This is a z-score
    z=(x-mu)/(standard deviation)
    z=(2.55-5)/(1.75)
    find z then look it up on your "areas under the curve normal distribution table" in the back of your textbook : )
