    If the mean and the standard deviation of a continuous random variable that is normally distributed are 20 and 5, respectively, find an interval that contains 68% of the distribution.

    A. (18,24)
    B. (15,25)
    C. (12,25)
    D. (10,30)

    2. If the mean and the standard deviation of a continuous random variable that is normally distributed are 28 and 3 respectively, find an interval that contains 95% of the distribution.

    A. (22,34)
    B. (25,31)
    C. (20,35)
    D. (19,37)

    3 A competency test has scores with a mean of 80 and a standard deviation of 10. A histogram of the data shows that the distribution is normal. Use the Empirical Rule to find the percentage of scores between 70 and 90.

    A. 99.7%
    B. 95%
    C. 68%
    D. 50%

    4. The heights of adult women are normally distributed with a mean of 62.5 inches and standard deviation of 2.5 inches. Use the Empirical Rule to determine between what two heights 68% of adult women will fail.

    A. (52.5,72.5)
    B. (55,70)
    C. (57.5,67.5)
    D. (60,65)

    5. The heights of adult women are normally distributed with a mean of 62.5 inches and standard deviation of 2.5 inches. Use the Empirical Rule to determine between what two heights 99.7% of adult women will fail.

    A. (52.5,72.5)
    B. (55,70)
    C. (57.5,67.5)
    D. (60, 65)
