Do you have a scientific calculator?
Can someone please help me with this problem, I would really appreciate it!
The weights of adult long-tongued fruit bats are known to be normally distributed with a mean of 20.22 grams and a standard deviation of 3.23 grams. What is the probability that a randomly selected bat will:
a) weigh at most 15 grams?
b) weigh less than 30 grams?
Do you have access to a Q function table and know how to use it? If the random variable X has the mean and standard deviation , then
The two questions basically ask the same thing with different wording (just replace x in the formula).
Under distribution on the calculator
normalcdf (left minimum, right maximum, mean, stand dev )
Use -10000 for far left and 10000 for far right so that you get all the area that you can under the normal distribution.
Example: for B normalcdf(-10000,30,20.22,3.23)
