Question

Suppose that the cost of annual tuition at colleges is normally distributed, with an average annual cost of \$13,926.78.  The standard deviation of tuition is \$4,085.42.  What percentage of colleges would be expected to have an annual tuition between the cost of College A with a tuition of \$20,106.18 and College B with a tuition of \$14,829.01?

Step 1

Denote X as the cost of annual tuition at colleges. It is given that X is normally distributed, with mean μ = \$13,926.78 and standard deviation σ = \$4,085.42.

That is,

Step 2

The percentage of colleges would be expected to have an annual tuition between the cost of College A with a tuition...
