Q7:

The heights of a sample of flowers are normally distributed with mean and standard deviation 12 cm. Given that of the flowers are shorter than 47 cm, determine .

Q8:

The heights of a group of students follow a normal distribution with a standard deviation of 20 cm. The probability that a studentβs height is less than or equal to 180 cm is equal to the probability that a standard normal variable is less than or equal to 2.2. Find the mean height of the group of students.

Q9:

The lengths of a certain type of plant are normally distributed with a mean and standard deviation . Given that the lengths of of the plants are less than 75 cm, find the variance.

Q10:

The monthly salaries of workers at a factory are normally distributed with mean and standard deviation 200 pounds. Given that of the workers earn more than 1,851 LE, find .
