b. What is the probability that the debt for a randomly selected borrower with good credit is less than $10,000 (to 4 decimals)?

c.What is the probability that the debt for a randomly selected borrower with good credit is between $12,000 and $18,000 (to 4 decimals)?

  1. a. What is the probability that the debt for a randomly selected borrower with good credit is more than $18,000 (to 4 decimals)?

    p(x > 18000)
    z = ( x - μ ) / σ
    z = (18000 -15015)/3730
    z =2985/3730 = 0.8
    P( z > 0.8) = 1-.7881= 0.2119

    b. What is the probability that the debt for a randomly selected borrower with good credit is less than $10,000 (to 4 decimals)?

    P( x <10000)
    z= ( x - μ ) / σ
    z = (10000-15015)/3730
    z =- 5015/3730 = -1.3445
    P( z < -1.34) = 0.0901

    c.What is the probability that the debt for a randomly selected borrower with good credit is between $12,000 and $18,000 (to 4 decimals)?

    P(12000<x<18000)
    z = ( x - μ ) / σ
    z = (12000-15015)/3730
    z =- 3015/3730 = -.81
    z = ( x - μ ) / σ
    z = 3015/3730 = 0.80
    P(-0.81<z<0.8) = 0.7881 - 0.2090 = 0.5791

    There is 0.5791 probability that the debt for a randomly selected borrower with good credit is between $12,000 and $18,000.

    d. What is the probability that the debt for a randomly selected borrower with good credit is no more than $14,000 (to 4 decimals)?

    P( x <14000)
    z= ( x - μ ) / σ
    z = (14000-15015)/3730
    z = -1015/3730
    z = -0.27
    P( z < -0.27) = 0.3936
