Statistics Z score Standard Normal Deviation question?

Postby brigg » Mon Oct 29, 2012 6:02 pm

The extract of a plant native to Taiwan has been tested as a possible treatment for Leukemia. One of the chemical compounds produced from the plant was analyzed for a particular collagen. The collagen amount was found to be normally distributed with a mean of 78 and standard deviation of 7.7 grams per mililiter.

(a) What is the probability that the amount of collagen is greater than 68 grams per mililiter?


(b) What is the probability that the amount of collagen is less than 75 grams per mililiter?

(c) What percentage of compounds formed from the extract of this plant fall within 2 standard deviations of the mean?

Can someone help explain how to get the answers?
