Suppose the most recent census reported that ages of all Alachua County residents are normally distributed with an average of 28.1 years and a standard deviation of 2.5 years. To verify the accuracy of the census results, a statistics student collected age data from a random sample of 500'Alachua County residents and found the average age ofthese 500 people to be 27.8 years, with a standard deviation of 2.3 years.

You should begin by sketching a well—labeled Normal curve that represents the distribution of weights of rhesus monkeys, labeling the mean of 15.3 along with the value of 10.5 on the weight axis. Next, shade the area under the curve that. represents weights of less than 10.5 pounds. Consider What to do now.
