Remember, each gestation period is its own normal distribution. Thus, you will need to change the "mean" and "standard deviation" to reflect the question you are answering. 2. What percent of the babies born with each gestation period have a low birth weight (under 5.5 pounds)? a. under 28 weeks b. 32 to 35 weeks c. 37 to 39 weeks d. 42 weeks and over Answer: 3. Describe the weights of the top 10% of the babies born with each gestation period. a. 37 to 39 weeks b. 42 weeks and over Answer: 4. For each gestation period, what is the probability that a baby will weigh between 6 and 9 pounds at birth? a. 32 to 35 weeks b. 37 to 39 weeks c . 42 weeks and over Answer: 5. A birth weight of less than 3.3 pounds is classified by the NCHS as a "very low birth weight." What is the probability that a baby has a very low birth weight for each gestation period? a. under 28 weeks b. 32 to 35 weeks c. 37 to 39 weeks Answer: Note: To solve thes change to the correc NORMDIST (x,mean the given mean and NORMINV (leftarea,m "leftarea" for the give Work each question, using Excel where appropriate.
