The next three lessons focus on three (3)
types of problems that may be solved using
the standard normal distribution.

problems that involve individual
values from a normally distributed
population (6.2)

THE NORMAL DISTRIBUTION
6.1 NORMAL DISTRIBUTIONS
Many types of data will form a graph that is bell shaped. These
types of graphs are called normal curves.
There are many data sets described by natural phenomena whose
graphs produce normal curves

Many decisions in business, insurance, and
other real-life situations are made by
assigning probabilities to all possible
outcomes pertaining to the situation and
then evaluating the results.

To determine the confidence interval for a
