a. P(x ≥14.5) = 1P(x≤14.5) =1P(z≤(14.514)/2) =1P(z≤0.25) =10.59871 (using normal table) = 0.50129 I'll try to do the others next.

b. P(x≤11) = P(z≤(1114)/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 ≥ (14.4214)/2)  P(z ≤ (19.461)/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
