# If a variable x is normally distributed, with μ = 25 and σ  = 5, find Pr ( 30  ≤   x   ≤  35 ) .

To determine

To calculate: The value of Pr(30x35) if a variable x is normally distributed, with μ=25 and σ=5.

Explanation

Formula used:

For a binomial distribution:

Mean is μ=np and standard deviation is σ=npq

And z score is, z=xμσ

q=1p

Where n the number of trials, p is the probability of success, and q is the probability of failure.

Calculation:

Consider a variable x is normally distributed, with μ=25, σ=5 and Pr(30x35).

To find the Pr(30x35) we convert 25 and 30 into z scores using z=xμσ.

Computing the z scores,

z=xμσz30=30255z30=55z30=1

And,

z
