Normal Distributions and Birth Weights in America (Insert your answers to the 5 questions on Birth Weights here. Be sure to carefully follow the examples worked in the Normal Ex worksheet from the Week6Lab.xls file. Copy-and-paste the Excel commands and/or Normal Probability Distributions you use to answer Questions 2a, 3a and 4a. You do not need to copy-and-paste anything for the other questions; you must provide your answers, however. **REMOVE THIS NOTE PRIOR TO SUBMITTING**) a) We see from the graph that μ is between 7 and 7.5 , the only period of gestation having a mean between 7 and 7.5 is: 37 to 39 weeks ( μ is 7.33) Answer: 37 to 39 weeks b) We see from the graph that μ is between 7.5 and 8 , and the distance between μ and 7 seems to be 2 times the distance between μ and 8 so μ is approx 7 2/3= 7.667 so we select the gestation period: 42 weeks and over (having a mean of 7.65) Answer: 42 weeks and over c) We see from the graph that μ is a little greater than 4 , the only period gestation having that mean is 28 to 31 weeks (it has a mean of 4.07) Answer: 28 to 31 weeks 2) a) X= weight of birth (period: 28 weeks), μ =1.88 σ =1.19 P(X<5.5) = NORMDIST(5.5,1.88,1.19,TRUE)= 0.9988 Answer: 99.88 % b) X= weight of birth (period 32 to 35 weeks), μ =5.73 σ =1.48 P(X<5.5) =0.4383 Answer: 43.83 % c) X= weight of birth (period 37 to 39 weeks),...
