    a. P(x ≥14.5) = 1-P(x≤14.5) =1-P(z≤(14.5-14)/2) =1-P(z≤0.25) =1-0.59871 (using normal table) = 0.50129 I'll try to do the others next.

    b. P(x≤11) = P(z≤(11-14)/2) =P(z≤-1.5) =1- 0.93319 (-ve so do 1 minus) = 0.06671

    c. Split into P(x ≥14.42) - P(x ≤19.46) =P(z ≥ (14.42-14)/2) - P(z ≤ (19.46-1)/2) =P(z ≥ 0.21) - P(z ≤ 2.73) =0.58317 + 0.99683 - =0.58

    d. P(x ≥ 9.12) - P(x ≤ 16.77) =P(z ≥ -2.44) - P(z ≤ 1.385) =0.99266 + 0.91774 - 1 =0.07492

    actually that last line should be 0.9104
