Suppose that the height (at the shoulder) of adult African bull bush elephants is normally distributed with μ = 3.25 meters and σ = .2 meter. The elephant on display at the Smithsonian Institution has height 4 meters and is the largest elephant on record. What is the probability that an adult African bull bush elephant has height 4 meters or more?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0These are the only one's that I have trouble with. I can do the % ones though.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Because for the % questions I can use invnorm on the calc.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, so you know that here, z = (xμ)/σ. Now, you can plug in mu and sigma, but your x is simply going to be the value you evaluate (in this case, 4). So, you can easily find the probability of anything LESS than 4 (let's call it "p")using the tables or your calculator, but you know that the maximum probability of anything is 1, so the probability of something greater than 4 is 1p.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0My answer is 3.75. I did z= (43.45)/(.2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Probabilities can't be greater than 3.75. :/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0***sorry, can't be greater than 1, typo. Double check your steps.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And, you happened to plug in 3.45, when the mean was in fact 3.25.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It was a typo. Rechecking my equation right now.
