    Probability: Given the Mean and Standard deviation

    Homework Statement The distribution of a drugs among addicts with autoimmune disorder is N(6.9, 16.81). What is the probability that one of these addicts enters your office and reports taking 16 drugs or more? The Attempt at a Solution z = (16-6.9)/4.1 = 2.21 P(z >16) = 0.014 from...

    Range of the middle 75% of the data

    Right, There will be 12.5% between infinity and each Z-score. There is 37.5% between each z-score and the mean Don't i still look look for .125 making the middle 75% between Z = 1.15 and Z = -1.15. (from z-table) Therefore, 9.1 - (1.15)(2.14) to 9.1 + (1.15)(2.14) = 6.61 through 11.6 making...

    Range of the middle 75% of the data

    Wait I think I have it now There will be 12.5% between the mean and each Z-score,so we look for .125. The closest Z is .32, so the middle 75% is between Z = 0.32 and Z = -32. Therefore, 9.1 - (0.32)(2.14) to 9.1 + (.32)(2.14) = 8.41 through 9.78.

    Range of the middle 75% of the data

    Thank you so much. I think I understand I want the x value that cuts off the upper 75% of the curve P(X>x) = 0.75 So I went to the z-table, and got a z value of 0.67 (using 0.251 inside the table, or should i use 0.248) 0.67 = x-9.1/2.14 x= .67(2.14) + 9.1 x= 10.54 therefore, the...
