Answer #1

Q1:

µ = 1387, σ = 161

P(X > 1532) =

= P( (X-µ)/σ > (1532-1387)/161)

= P(z > 0.9006)

= 1 - P(z < 0.9006)

Using excel function:

= 1 - NORM.S.DIST(0.9006, 1)

= **0.1839**

Q2:

P(1453 < X < 1705) =

= P( (1453-1387)/161 < (X-µ)/σ < (1705-1387)/161 )

= P(0.4099 < z < 1.9752)

= P(z < 1.9752) - P(z < 0.4099)

Using excel function:

= NORM.S.DIST(1.9752, 1) - NORM.S.DIST(0.4099, 1)

= **0.3168**

Q3:

µ = 40, σ = 7

Z score at p = 0.39 using excel = NORM.S.INV(0.39) = -0.2793

Value of X = µ + z*σ = 40 + (-0.2793)*7 =
**38.04**

Q4:

µ = 92.55, σ = 16.9

P(x < a) = 0.39

Z score at p = 0.39 using excel = NORM.S.INV(0.39) = -0.2793

Value of X = µ + z*σ = 92.55 + (-0.2793)*16.9 =
**87.83**

Q5:

µ = 38, σ = 5

Z score at p = 0.6 using excel = NORM.S.INV(0.6) = 0.2533

Value of X = µ + z*σ = 38 + (0.2533)*5 =
**39.27**
