Question

According to an article in American Scientist, IQ scores are normally distributed with a mean of 100 and a standard deviation of 15. Find the following probabilities:

a) The probability that a randomly selected person has an IQ score of at least 111.

b) The probability that a randomly selected person has an IQ of less than 96.

c) The probability that a randomly selected person has an IQ score between 119 and 145.

(Please show all work.)

Answer #1

**Solution:-**

Mean = 100, S.D = 15

**a) The probability that a randomly selected person has
an IQ score of at least 111 is 0.232.**

x = 111

By applying normal distruibution:-

z = 0.733

**P(z > 0.7333) = 0.232.**

**b) The probability that a randomly selected person has
an IQ of less than 96 is 0.605.**

x = 96

By applying normal distruibution:-

z = - 0.267

**P(z < - 0.267) = 0.605**

**c) The probability that a randomly selected person has
an IQ score between 119 and 145 is 0.102.**

x_{1} = 119

x_{2} = 145

By applying normal distruibution:-

z_{1} = 1.2667

z_{2} = 3.0

P( 1.2667 < z < 3.00) = P(z > 1.2667) - P(z > 3.0)

P( 1.2667 < z < 3.00) = 0.103 - 0.001

**P( 1.2667 < z < 3.00) = 0.102**

1. IQ tests are normally distributed with a mean of 100 and a
standard deviation of 15. Find the following probabilities:
A) If a person is randomly selected, what is the probability
that the person had an IQ greater than125? _________________
b) If a person is randomly selected what is the probability that
the person has an IQ below 92?
c) If 40 people are randomly selected, what is the probability
that their mean IQ is between 98 and 108?

Assume that adults have IQ scores that are normally distributed
with a mean of 100 and a standard deviation of 15. For a randomly
selected adult, find the probability. Round scores to nearest whole
number.
1.) Prob. of IQ less than 85
2.)Prob. of IQ greater than 70
3.) Prob. of randomly selected adult having IQ between 90 and
110.

Assume that adults have IQ scores that are normally distributed
with a mean of mu equals 100 and a standard deviation sigma equals

between 85 and 115. The probability that a randomly selected adult
has an IQ between 85 and 115 is:

Assume that adults have IQ scores that are normally distributed
with a mean of 103.3 and a standard deviation of 16.2. Find the
probability that a randomly selected adult has an IQ greater than
127.4. (Hint: Draw a graph.) The probability that a randomly
selected adult from this group has an IQ greater than 127.4 is
