Activity 2
Question
Gail averages 64 words per minute on a typing test with a standard deviation of 9.5 words per minute. Suppose Gail’s words per minute on a typing test are normally distributed. Let X= the number of words per minute on a typing test. Then X∼N (64,9.5).
If necessary, round to three decimal places.
Provide your answer below:
Suppose Gail types 89 words per minute in a typing test on Sunday. The z-score when x = 89 is …… The mean is …… This z-score tells you that x = 89 is standard deviations to the ……. of the mean.

Activity 4
Question
Annie averages 23 points per basketball game with a standard deviation of 4 points. Suppose Annie’s points per basketball game are normally distributed. Let X= the number of points per basketball game. Then X∼N (23,4).
Provide your answer below:
Ans:
Suppose Annie scores 34 points in the game on Sunday. The z-score when x=34 is …… The mean is ……This z-score tells you that x=34 is …. standard deviations to the …… of the mean.

Activity 7
Question
Lexie averages 149 points per bowling game with a standard deviation of 14 points. Suppose Lexie’s points per bowling game are normally distributed. Let X= the number of points per bowling game. Then X∼N(149,14).
Ans:
Suppose Lexie scores 186 points in the game on Tuesday.
The z-score can be found using this formula:
…………..
Hence, the z-score when x = 186 is ……… The mean is ………. This z-score tells you that x = 186 is ……….. standard deviations to the ……… of the mean.
