1. What are the characteristics of a normal distribution?
2. For Exercise a through g, find the area under the
standard normal distribution curve.
a. To the left of z= -2.15 and to the right of z = 1.62
b. To the right of z = 1.92 and to the left of z = -0.44
c. P(z > 0.82)
d. P(z< -1.77)
e. P(-0.20 < z < 1.56)
f. P(-2.46 < z <1.74)
g. P(1.12 < z <1.43)
3. Find the z value to the right of the mean so that
a. 54.78% of the area under the distribution curve lies to the left of it.
b. 69.85% of the area under the distribution curve lies to the left of it.
c. 88.10% of the area under the distribution curve lies to the left of it.
