Consider a normally distributed random variable where mu = std. dev = k.

Find Pr(Z > 2k):

No idea on this one.

im not exactly sure, the question did not say that Z was a standard normal variable, only that is was normal. But the letter Z usually denotes a std normal variable...

Im not exactly sure how you got Pr(X>2k)=Pr(Z>1), could you clarify? - Oct 5th 2006, 01:25 AMCaptainBlack
