Unformatted text preview: founding will be 34 years or less? (34-110)/34 = z z = 2.235 p = 0.012 3. Along with Virginia Commonwealth University, the two largest institutions in the city of Richmond are Virginia Union University (founded in 1899, 107 years ago) and the University of Richmond (founded in 1830, 176 years ago). Based on the distribution described above, what is the probability that the number of years since founding will be between 107 and 176 years? (107-110)/34 = z z = -0.088 p = 0.4641 1 - p = 0.5359 (176-110)/34 = z z = 1.941 p = 0.9738 p2-p1 = 0.5097 4. SCHEV wants to determine the number of years since founding for the colleges that fall in the middle 50% of the distribution. Based on the distribution described above, between what two values will the middle 50% of the number of years since founding values fall? Hint: draw a picture, mark the middle 50%, and convert to two less than problems. p = 0.25 z = -0.67-0.67 = (x-110) / 34 x = 87.22 p = 0.75 z = 0.67 0.67 = (x-110) / 34 x = 132.78...
