01. 
Z ∼ 
(0, 1) 
. Find the following probabilities. 





d. Pr(Z >−0.213Z <1.32)
02. Draw the standard normal curve and shad the probability corresponding to
Pr(1.05 <Z <1.25)
. Calculate this probability.
03. Consider the following standard normal curve.
04. 
For a normally distributed random variable, 
X ∼(70, σ 
2 
) 
, if Pr(X <60) =0.45 
, what is 
Pr(X >80) 
? 

05. 
For 
Y ∼ N(6, 2 
2 
) , nd the corresponding 
Z value for each of the following 
Y values. 

a. 
Y =4 

b. 
Y =6 

c. 
Y =9 

06.

07. 
The random variable 
X can take negative and postive values. X is normally distributed with mean 
3 and variance 
2.25 . Find the probability that 
X 
has positive 

value. 

08. 
Given 
Z ∼ 
N(0, 1) 
, nd 
k 
in each of the following. 

a. 
Pr(Z <k) =0.2 

b. 
Pr(Z >k) =0.05 

210 hours. It is found that 
5 % of these light bulbs last for more than 
222 hours. Find the variance, 

correct to 3 signi cant gures. 


90 minutes and standard deviation 
9.6 
minutes. 
a. Find the probability that Olly takes londer than
105 minutes to commute
b. Find the probability that Olly takes between
95
minutes to
105
minutes to commute
c. Find the minimum commute time
k
for Olly, above which the latest
10
% commute times fall in the distribution
