In a large section of a statistics class, the points for the final exam are normally distributed, with a mean of

7474

and a standard deviation of
99.

Grades are assigned such that the top 10% receive A's, the next 20% received B's, the middle 40% receive C's, the next 20% receive D's, and the bottom 10% receive F's. Find the lowest score on the final exam that would qualify a student for an A, a B, a C, and a D.Step 1

Given data

Mean = 74

Standard Deviation = 9

**a)The Lowest Score for A grade is given by **

p-value will be 0.90 for top 10%

Finding the value of z at p=0.90

z(p=0.90) = 1.28 ( From Excel =NORM.S.INV(0.90))

Step 2

**b)The Lowest Score for B grade is given by **

p-value will be 0.70 for top 30%

Finding the value of z at p=0.70

z(p=0.70) = 0.524 ( From Excel =NORM.S.INV(0.70))

Step 3

**d) The lowest grade for Grade D is**

p-value will be 0.10 for lowest 10%

Finding the value of z at ...
