Normal Distribution forms a bell-shaped curved that is symmetric about a vertical line through the mean
of the data.

Properties:

1. The graph is symmetric about a vertical line through the mean of the distribution.
2. The mean, median and mode are equal
3. The y – value of each point on the curve is the percent of the data at the corresponding x – value
4. Areas under the curve that are symmetric about the mean are equal
5. The total area under the curve is 1.

## Standard normal Distribution

𝑥−𝜇 𝑥−𝑥
𝑧= for population and 𝑧 = for sample
𝜎 𝑠
Probability – is the likelihood for the event to happen.

## 1. 𝑧 > 1.39 3. (−0.44 < 𝑧 < 1.82) 5. 𝑧 < −2.55

2. 𝑧 < 1.92 4. (1 < 𝑧 < 1.92) 6. 𝑧 < 1.39

## Prepared by: Jun Klein J. Teves

Sol. 1. z = 1.39 is equivalent to 0.4177 or 41.77%, so z > 1.39 is 0.5 – 0.4177 = 0.0823 or 8.23%

## 2. z = 1.92 is equivalent to 0.4767 so z < 1.92 is 0.5 + 0.4767 = 0.9767 or 97.67%

3. z = -0.44 and z = 1.82 is equivalent to 0.1700 and 0.4656 and between them is 0.1700 +
0.4656 = 0.6356 or 63.56%

4. z = 1 and z = 1.92 is 0.3413 and 0.4726 and between them is 0.4726 – 0.3413 = 0.1313

## 6. z = 1.39 is equivalent to 0.4177 so z < 1.39 is 0.5 + 0.4177 = 0.9177

7. A soda machine dispenses soda into 12-ounce cups. Tests show that the actual amount of soda
dispensed is normally distributed, with a mean of 11.5 oz and a standard deviation of 0.2 oz
a. What percent of cups will receive less than 11.25 oz of soda?
11.25−11.5
𝑧= = −1.25 → 0.3944 so less than 11.25 is 0.5 – 0.3944 = 0.1056
0.2
b. What percent of cups will receive between 11.2 oz and 11.55 oz of soda?
11.2−11.5 11.55−11.5
𝑧= 0.2
= −1.5 → 0.4332 and 𝑧 = 0.2
= 0.25 → 0.0987
So, between them is 0.4332 + 0.0987 = 0.5319
c. If a cup is filled at random, what is the probability that the machine will overflow the cup?
The cup will overflow if it pours greater than 12 oz
12−11.5
𝑧= 0.2
= 2.5 → 0.4938 so greater than 12 is 0.5 – 0.4938 = 0.0062
d. If we have 1000 cups, how many of the cups will receive less than 11.25 oz of soda?
1000(0.1056) = 105.6 which is approx. 106
e. If we have 1000 cups, how many of the cups will overflow?
1000(0.0062) = 6.2 which is approx. 7
