Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You would use a ztable or calculator Do you use a table ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Here is a site that does the conversion http://www.tutorhomework.com/statistics_tables/statistics_tables.html How are you doing these problems?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1your book must talk about how to do this?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1but to do a) select standard distribution (the first one shown) right tail type in 0.966 for z and have it calculate the area under the curve to the right of that z score. that is the chance the weight is above this z score

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0any way this can be done on a graphing calc rather than on this site?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if it knows about normal distributions (do they?) otherwise http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Normal_distribution#Numerical_approximations_for_the_normal_CDF is a (messy) way

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0using normal since ur z score is 0.966 round to 2 decimal u'll have 0.97 it means u'll have P(z>=0.97) because it is over 1050 u'll have 1P(Z<=0.97) on the z table 0.97 it hase the probability of 0.1660 now 1(0.1660) 0.834 wich by conclusion is 83.4%

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah i get everything except the part where i get the 0.1660. i dont know how to get it without using the site Phi gave me above. ^^^

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes i get that by doing the formula for z score and rounding

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do u see the value that correspond to it ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0not really no. i dont get how that part works.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah. i just dont know how i get this table to see the probability.

REMAINDER

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0to find this 0.1660 take 0.9 ignore negative (meaning u gonna take 0.9)then add it to 0.07 wich will give positive 0.97 from there where 0.9 intersects 0.07 is ypur probability

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes i get that. i dont know how to get that table though.
