Using the following uniform density curve, answer the question. 1) What is the probability that the random variable has a value less than 6? 1) Assume that the weight loss for the first month of a diet program varies between 6 pounds and 12 pounds, and is spread evenly over the range of possibilities, so that there is a uniform distribution. Find the probability of the given range of pounds lost. 2) Between 8 pounds and 11 pounds 2) If Z is a standard normal variable, find the probability. 3) P( - 0.73 < Z < 2.27) 3) 4) P(Z > 0.59) 4) 5) The probability that Z is less than 1.13 5) 6) The probability that Z lies between - 2.41 and 0 6) Thermometers are supposed to give readings of 0°C at the freezing point of water. Tests on a large sample of these thermometers reveal that at the freezing point of water, some give readings below 0°C (denoted by negative numbers) and some give readings above 0°C (denoted by positive numbers). Assume that the mean reading is 0°C and the standard deviation of the readings is 1.00°C. Also assume that the frequency distribution of errors closely resembles the normal distribution.
