Question

The lengths of a particular animal's pregnancies are approximately normally distributed, with mean muequals276 days and standard deviation sigmaequals16 days. (a) What proportion of pregnancies lasts more than 300 days? (b) What proportion of pregnancies lasts between 268 and 288 days? (c) What is the probability that a randomly selected pregnancy lasts no more than 248 days? (d) A "very preterm" baby is one whose gestation period is less than 240 days. Are very preterm babies unusual?

The proportion of pregnancies that last more than 300 days is nothing. (Round to four decimal places as needed.)

(b) The proportion of pregnancies that last between 268 and 288 days is nothing. (Round to four decimal places as needed.)

(c) The probability that a randomly selected pregnancy lasts no more than 248 days is nothing. (Round to four decimal places as needed.)

(d) The probability of a "very preterm" baby is nothing. This event ▼ would be would not be unusual because the probability is ▼ greater less than 0.05. (Round to four decimal places as needed.)
