A. The mean of this distribution is

B. The standard deviation is

C. The probability that a person will be born at the exact moment that week 29 begins is P(x = 29) =

D. The probability that a person will be born between weeks 5 and 18 is P(5 < x < 18) =

E. The probability that a person will be born after week 30 is P(x > 30) =

F. P(x > 17 | x < 21) =

G. Find the 40th percentile.

H. Find the minimum for the upper quartile.
