The scores of an exam were normally distributed with a mean of 42 and a standard deviation of 26. The following chart shows cutoffs for student scores (e.g., a student who scores better than a 10 but less than 30 will receive a D):
scores 10 30 40 50 60 70 80 90
grade D C C+ B- B B+ A- A
a. What is the chance that a random student got a B or higher?
b. What is the chance that a random student failed the exam?
Note: you must draw separate pictures for each part to get credit!
Sorry, I make a mistake, I read the wrong number (x). It should be B=60. So, it should be :
Z=(60-42)/16=0.6923
P(Z)=0.7549, (USING THE CHART TO FIND THE PROBABILITY)
The final answer is A=1-0.7549=0.2451
Good effort. Just remember that this topic will not be on Exam 2.
