Question #1 / 5
Let be a standard normal random variable. Use the calculator provided to determine the value of such that
.
Carry your intermediate computations to at least four decimal places. Round your answer to at least two decimal places.

From standard normal table, we have,
P (-1.8599 ≤ Z ≤ 1.8599) = 0.9371
Therefore, c = 1.8599

Question #2 / 5
Suppose that the heights of adult women in the United States are normally distributed with a mean of inches and a standard deviation of inches. Jennifer is taller than of the population of ...
