First one

 

P ( 2.5   ≤ x   ≤ 4 )  =

 

Width of the interval of interest

_________________________     =

    Total width of interval

 

(4 - 2.5)                   1.5

______     =        ________    =   .375

  4 - 0                       4

 

 

Second one

P( < 180)  =

 

180 - 177                  3

_________  =         ___    =   .60

182  - 177                 5
