 1.06 Normal distribution probabilities

Interactive practice questions

The diagram shows the curve of a standard normal curve.

Use this curve to answer the following. a

What is the area above the mean of the normal curve?

b

What is the area below the mean of the normal curve?

Easy
Less than a minute

The given table gives us the area between $0$0 and a given $z$z-score.

Using the table, find the area under the normal curve between one standard deviation(s) below the mean and two standard deviation(s) above the mean.

The given table gives us the area between $0$0 and a given $z$zscore.

Using the table, find the area under the normal curve between $1.60$1.60 and $1.80$1.80 standard deviations above the mean.

The given table gives us the area between $0$0 and a given $z$z score.

Using the table, find the area under the normal curve to the left of $z=1.15$z=1.15.

Outcomes

S.ID.A.4

Use the mean and standard deviation of a data set to fit it to a normal distribution and to estimate population percentages. Recognize that there are data sets for which such a procedure is not appropriate. Use calculators, spreadsheets, and tables to estimate areas under the normal curve.

S.IC.B.4

Use data from a sample survey to estimate a population mean or proportion; develop a margin of error through the use of simulation models for random sampling.

S.IC.B.5

Use data from a randomized experiment to compare two treatments; use simulations to decide if differences between parameters are significant.
