Given: there are 25 shots and 40% of the shots are made. Let the numbers from 1 to 40 represent a made shot, while the numbers from 41 to 100 represent a missed shot.
The following Ti83/Ti84 calculator command then generates 25 numbers from 1 to 100: randInt(1,100,25)
where randInt can be found in the MATH-menu under PRB.
Count the number of integers from 1 to 40 in the result to obtain the estimated number of shots made.
Given: there are 8 free throws and 75.2% of the free throws are made. Let the numbers from 1 to 752 represent a madde free throw, while the numbers from 753 to 1000 represent a missed free throw.
The following Ti83/Ti84 calculator command then generates 8 numbers from 1 to 1000: randInt(1,1000,8)
where randInt can be found in the MATH-menu under PRB.
Count the number of integers from 1 to 752 in the result to obtain the estimated number of free throws made.

The amount of time Ricardo spends brushing his teeth follows a Normal distribution with unknown mean and standard deviation.
Ricardo spends less than one minute brushing his teeth about 40% of the time.
He spends more than two minutes brushing his teeth 2% of the time.
Use this information to determine the mean and standard deviation of this distribution.
