6. ### For the normal distribution with parameters μ = 4, σ = 3 ; calculate P(x > 1)

For the normal distribution with parameters μ = 4, σ = 3 ; calculate P(x > 1) Using our calculator, we get P(x > 1) = 0.841345
7. ### μ = 5, σ = 4 ; calculate P(0 < x < 8)

μ = 5, σ = 4 ; calculate P(0 < x < 8) This is the same as P(x < 8) - P(x < 0). P(x < 8) using our calculator is 0.773373 P(x < 0) using our calculator is 0.10565 So we have 0.773373 - 0.10565 = 0.667723
8. ### The relief time provided by a standard dose of a popular children’s allergy medicine averages 7.9

The relief time provided by a standard dose of a popular children’s allergy medicine averages 7.9 hours with a standard deviation of 2.2 hours. Use Table 1. a. Determine the percentage of children who experience relief for less than 6.4 hours if the relief time follows a normal distribution...
