Or from Table C, 1-Pr(X<=2)=1-.0620=.09.) 5. .227 =Pr( X>83)=Pr(Z > (83-80)/4) = Pr(Z > .75) = 1 - Pr(Z <= .75) =1 - .7734 = .2266; where Z is the standard normal distribution 6. 76.6 = (-.84)*4+80=76.6 7. 3.17 =E(X)=4*.5+3*.3+2*.1+1*.07 =3.17 8. 1.06 (first calculate E(X^2)= 16*.5+9*.3+4*.1+1*.07=11.17,
