8-7 Fitting to a Normal Distribution Warm Up Find the mean and standard deviation of each data set. 1. {2, 10, 5, 3}

mean: 5; std. dev. ≈ 3.08

2. {30, 30, 60}

mean: 40; std. dev. ≈ 14.1

3. {2, 2, 2, 2,2}

mean: 2; std. dev. = 0

4. Determine which data set has the greater standard deviation without calculating it. Explain.

8-7 Fitting to a Normal Distribution Example 1: Finding Joint and Marginal Relative Frequencies

Jamie can drive her car an average of 432 gallons per tank of gas, with a standard deviation of 36 miles. Use the graph to estimate the probability that Jamie will be able to drive more than 450 miles on her next tank of gas.

8-7 Fitting to a Normal Distribution Example 1 : Continued

The area under the normal curve is always equal to 1. Each square on the grid has an area of 10(0.001) = 0.01. Count the number of grid squares under the curve for values of x greater than 450. There are about 31 squares under the graph, so the probability is about 31(0.01) = 0.31 that she will be able to drive more than 450 miles on her next tank of gas.

8-7 Fitting to a Normal Distribution Check It Out! Example 1 continued

There are about 19 squares under curve less than 400, so the probability is about 19(0.01) = 0.19 that she will be able to drive less than 400 miles on the next tank of gas.

First, find the standard normal value of 148, using μ = 160 and σ = 12.

8-7 Fitting to a Normal Distribution Example 2: Using Standard Normal Values

Scores on a test are normally distributed with a mean of 160 and a standard deviation of 12. A. Estimate the probability that a randomly selected student scored less than 148.

First, find the standard normal value of 148, using μ = 160 and σ = 12. X µ 148 160 Z= = 1 = 12 σ

8-7 Fitting to a Normal Distribution Example 2: Continued Use the table to find the area under the curve for all values less than 1, which is 0.16. The probability of scoring less than 148 is about 0.16. B. Estimate the probability that a randomly selected student scored between 154 and 184. Find the standard normal values of 154 and 184. Use the table to find the areas under the curve for all values less than z.

8-7 Fitting to a Normal Distribution Example 2: Using Standard Normal Values continued X µ 154 160 Z= = 0.5 = 12 σ X µ 184 160 = Z= =2 12 σ

Area=0.31

Area=0.98

Subtract the areas to eliminate where the regions overlap. The probability of scoring between 154 and 184 is about 0.98 – 0.31 = 0.67.
