Question

The systolic blood pressure is normally distributed with mean of 120 and standard deviation of 16. Find

- What is the range for 68% of the population?

- What percent of the students would have blood pressure in the range of 88 and 152

- What is the variance?

Answer #1

by emperical rule on normal distribution , we have

1) 68 % of data is distributed with in one standard deviation about mean .

2) 95% of data is distributed with in 2 standard deviation about mean .

a) here mean is 120 and standard deviation is 16 .

68% of population is with in 1 standard deviation . that is from 120-16= 104 to 120+16= 136 .

**so range for 68% is 104 to 136**

b) 88 means 120-2*16 and 152 means 120+2*16 .

so the region is with in two standard deviation about mean . so percentage is 95%

**so 95% percentage with in 88 to 152**

c) we know

variance= standard deviation^{2}

so

variance= 16^{2}= 256

**so variance is 256**

120 mmHg.
probability =
c) The mean systolic blood pressure will be
between 107 and 119 mmHg.
probability =...

Assume that the mean systolic blood pressure of normal adults is
120 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg) and the population standard
deviation is 5.6. Assume the variable is normally distributed. If a
sample of 30 adults is randomly selected, find the probability that
the sample mean will be between 120-mm and 121.8-mm Hg.

Assume that the mean systolic blood pressure of normal adults is
120 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg) and the standard deviation is

individual is selected, find the probability that the individual’s
systolic blood pressure will be between 118.4 and 121.9 mm Hg.
