STAT 210 Lecture 20 Normal Distributions October 11 2017 Practice Problems Pages 162 through 165 Relevant problems VI 4 Recommended problems VI 4 Additional Reading and Examples Read pages 158 through 160 TOP HAT 2 Properties The normal curve is bell shaped The peak of the curve is the population mean m The normal curve is symmetric about m The center and spread are completely specified by specifying the values of the population mean m and the population standard deviation s The total area under the normal curve is 1 or 100 Notation X N m s X is distributed normal with mean m and standard deviation s Standard Normal Distribution Denoted by Z Has population mean m 0 center Has population standard deviation s 1 spread Shape is normal symmetric bell curve No unusual features Z N 0 1 Probabilities are tabled on pages 338 339 Normal Table Gives the probability that the standard normal variable Z falls below some specified value z less than problems Read the value of z down the left most column and across the top row and read the probability from the body of the table Normal Variables A standard normal Z distribution requires that the mean is 0 and that the standard deviation is 1 How many real variables weight height grades on a test etc do you think have a mean of 0 and a standard deviation of 1 Answer I cannot think of any Z Score Transformation Skip to page 147 Suppose X is distributed normal with some mean m not equal to 0 and or some standard deviation s not equal to 1 X N m s Z Score Transformation We convert to a standard normal variable Z N 0 1 Z X m value mean s standard deviation Z Score Transformation Subtraction of m converts the mean to 0 Division by s converts the standard deviation to 1 Z X m s s m s 1 m 0 Z Score Transformation P a X b P a m X m b m s P a m s s s Z b m s Once converted from X to Z the standard normal table on pages 338 and 339 is used to find the probability just as in Examples 34 through 41 Example 47 X N 10 5 P 12 X

12 Standard Normal Distribution All of the problems from the last lecture asked us to find the probability given a value or values of Z Now suppose the probability or area or proportion or percentage is given and we want to find the corresponding value of Z see page 145 There are three such problems Less Than Problem Suppose you want to find the value z such that the probability of being less than z or less than and equal to z is as specified Less Than Problem Suppose you want to find the value z such that the probability of being less than z or less than and equal to z is as specified To solve 1 Draw a normal curve and mark the information stated in the problem Less Than Problem Suppose you want to find the value z such that the probability of being less than z or less than and equal to z is as specified To solve 1 Draw a normal curve and mark the information stated in the problem 2 In the normal table find the specified less than probability in the body of the table and then read across and up to determine the appropriate z value Finding Values of Z Body of table Values of Z Value Problems on the Calculator See pages 160 and 161 for instructions for using the calculator to determine normal probabilities and values of normal variables 1 Hit 2nd then VARS this gives a list of distributions 2 Choose option 3 invNorm 3 You must enter three numbers the LESS THAN probability then the mean which is currently 0 and then the standard deviation which is currently 1 Example 42 Find the value of z such that the probability of being less than z is 8212 1 z P Z z 8212 Example 42
