The area under the standard normal curve where a. P(Z< +1.52) = b. P(Z> +1.62) = c. P(-1.14 < Z < +1.14) = d. P(1.02 < Z < 2.40) = The diameters of ball bearings are distributed normally. The mean diameter is 58 millimeters and the variance is 9. Find the probability that the diameter of the selected bearing is greater than 61 millimeters.
