Step 1

a.

The distribution of X,

Step 2

b.

The probability that a randomly selected acre in the forest has fewer than 34,078 ants is,

Thus, the probability that a randomly selected acre in the forest has fewer than 34,078 ants is 0.2627.

Step 3

c.

The probability that a randomly selected acre in the forest has between 35,392 and 42,240 ants is,

Thus, the probability that a randomly selected acre in the forest has between 35,392 and 42,240 ants is 0.6932.
