When number of trials of an experiment increases, and then the probability distribution curve becomes smoother and reaches a bell-shaped curve which is called as normal distribution. Some of the important characteristics of normal distribution are listed below.
-The area under any normal distribution must be equal to 1.
-Normal distribution is always symmetrical about the mean.
Conclusion:
Thus, some of the important characteristics of a normal distribution have been explained.

Use the following Normal Distribution table to calculate the area under the Normal Curve (Shaded area in the Figure) when \(Z=1.3\) and \(H=0.05\);
Assume that you do not have vales of the area beyond \(z=1.2\) in the table; i.e. you may need to use the extrapolation.
Check your calculated value and compare with the values in the table \([for\ z=1.3\ and\ H=0.05]\).
Calculate your percentage of error in the estimation.
How do I solve this problem using extrapolation?

The college physical education department offered an advanced first aid course last semester. The scores on the comprehensive final exam were normally distributed, and the z scores for some of the students are shown below:
Robert, 1.10 Juan, 1.70 Susan, -2.00
Joel, 0.00 Jan, -0.80 Linda, 1.60
Which of these students scored above the mean?

The manager of the store in the preceding exercise calculated the residual for each point in the scatterplot and made a dotplot of the residuals.
The distribution of residuals is roughly Normal with a mean of $0 and standard deviation of $22.92.
The middle 95% of residuals should be between which two values? Use this information to give an interval of plausible values for the weekly sales revenue if 5 linear feet are allocated to the store's brand of men's grooming products.
