1) In a standard normal distribution, what fraction of the data is between the mean and 0.6?

 

2) In a standard normal distribution, what percent of the data is between -0.4 and 0.4?

 

3) In a standard normal distribution, what percent of the data is between two and three standard deviations below the mean?

 

All help is appreciated :)

1)   Here...I'm assuming that  .06   is a z score

 

The value  associated with a z score of  .06  =  .5239

 

The  mean will  have a z score of 0    .....of course.....the value associated with the mean  = .5000

 

So.....the percent of data falling between .5000  and .5239   =

 

[ .5239 - .5000]  =   ..0239  ≈    2.39%

Nice I got the first one correct, although I did it a little differently than you did.

I have a chart here and for 0.6 it says that 0.6 = .2257. Does that change anything? I am to use the chart that I have.

I made the same mistake originally

 

z score for  0.6  =  .7257

 

But  we want the  score associated with  .06

 

This  is  .5239

Oh dear, I seem to have made a typo. For question #1 it is asking for the data between the mean and 0.6. My apologies. Does this mean that your first answer was correct? The one that I also got the same answer for? Sorry again!

Yeah....if it's supposed to be  0.6  the value is  .7257

 

So.....the % would be   [.7257 - .5000]  =  .2257 = 22.57%

2) In a standard normal distribution, what percent of the data is between -0.4 and 0.4?

 

The z score value associated with .0.4  is .6554

The z score  value associated with -.0.4  is .3446

 

So.....the percent of data falling between these   is [ .6554 - .3446]  = .3108  =  31.08%

 

CORRECTED ANSWER  !!!!

Question #2 it is talking about .4 but in your answer, you found the z score for .04?

3) In a standard normal distribution, what percent of the data is between two and three standard deviations below the mean?

 

The percent of  data  falling between  two and three SDs   below the mean is the same  percent of data falling between two and three SDs  above the mean

 

The  percent   =   1.7%  between  2  and 2.5 SDs above the mean plus   .5 %  between 2.5 and 3 SDs  above the mean

 

So....the total %   =   [ 1.7  + .5 ] %  =   2.2%
