REVIEW QUESTIONS FOR FINAL EXAM 12/08 A. Chapter 6: Some continuous probability distributions Q. 1 What is a normal distribution N ( μ,σ 2 ) and a normal random variable? What is the standard normal distribution and the standard normal random variables? What is the normal curve? Q. 2 if X is a random variable with the normal distribution N (2 , 4) , what is its mean and variance, and its standard deviation? Q. 3 What is the area under the normal curve between the ordinates x = x 1 and x = x 2 ? Give an example? Q. 4 Given a random variable Z with the standard normal distribution, use Table A.3 to indicate the area under the normal curve corresponding to P ( Z < z ) for values of z ranging from -3.49 to 3.49. Find the area under the curve that lies (a) to the right of z=1.84 and (b) between z=-1.97 and z=0.86. Exercices 1-14 page 157.
