(6points: three points for graph, three points for explanation)*Graph attached separately.There is about a 2.5% chance that one of his steers would have a weight of at least 1350pounds. 1350 is 2 standard deviations above the mean, meaning that 97.5% of the weightsare less than 1350. This means that it would be relatively unusual for the farmer to find a
