[+1 each - +0.5 for correctly shading & +0.5 for correct answer from table] Assume the variable 2 follows a standard normal distribution; that is, assume 2 is normally distributed with u = 0 and a = 1. Shade the region corresponding to the proportion of observations satisfying the stated criteria. Then use the z—table in the front of the book to find the proportion.
