    Based on data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey assume that the a height of female college students are normally distributed with a MEAN OF 64 INCHES and standard deviation of 2.5 inches.
    Find the probability that a female student randomly selected from the above population will have a height equal to or less 66.15 inches.

    Find the probability that a female student randomly selected from the above population will have a height equal to greater than 63 inches.

    Find the probability that a female student randomly selected from the above population will have a height between 64 inches and 66 inches.

    Based on data from National Health and Nutrition examination survey that the weights of men are normally distributed with a MEANS 170 LBS AND STANDARD DEVIATION of 30lbs.

    Find the probability that the average weight 9 men randomly selected from the above population will have a weight equal to or less than 185 lbs.

    Find the probability that the average weight 9 men randomly selected from the above population will have a weight equal to or greater than 185 lbs.

    Based on data from the National Health and Nutrition examination Survey assume that the a height of female college students are normally distributed with a MEANS OF 64 INCHES and standard deviation of 2.5 inches.

    Find the probability that a female student randomly selected from the above population will have a height equal to or less 66.15 inches.
    Ans: Let x be the height of female college students, then z=(x-mu)/sd=(66.15-64)/2.5=0.86. So P(X<=66.15)=P(Z<=0.86)=0.8051 by standard normal table

    Find the probability that a female student ...
