3. Using the standard normal distribution table, find the probability values of the following:

P(z < 1.8)

P( z > 1.8)

P(> -2.37)

P(1.76 < Z > 2.57)

any idea how to start this

look here

is there a tutorial i can get

with formulas and stuff without using jus the calculator - April 5th 2011, 05:36 PMpickslides
Nope, this is just an exercise of reading values from a table or using technology to get the values.

If you have it just use excel

P(z < 1.8)

Code:`=normsdist(1.8)`

P( z > 1.8)

Code:`=1-normsdist(1.8)`

P(> -2.37)

Code:`=1-normsdist(-2.37)`

P(1.76 < Z > 2.57) do you mean P(1.76 < Z < 2.57) ? if so

Code:`=normsdist(2.57)-normsdist(1.76)`

=normsdist(1.8)

got 0.4641 on the table

now what to do from there - April 5th 2011, 07:27 PMmath321
also got to do a sketch

so i have to add .5

is dat it - April 5th 2011, 08:03 PMmath321
and for this 1 P( z > 1.8)

will it be .5 - .4691

or 1 - .4691 - April 5th 2011, 08:12 PMpickslides
- April 5th 2011, 08:13 PMmath321
yep slightly better

and for this 1 P( z > 1.8)

will it be .5 - .4691

or 1 - .4691 - April 5th 2011, 08:16 PMpickslides

can u give me an idea of how the graph will look please

starting to understand a little more - April 5th 2011, 08:27 PMpickslides
The curve is in these links,

for this 1 P(> -2.37)

i got 1 - 0.0089 = .9911
