The given information "z-score for the first quartile and the third quartile of the standard normal distribution."
We know that 0.250 square unit of the area covered in the standard normal distribution to the left of the third quartile.
We have to find the z-score that has an area of 0.250 square units to the left of the z-score.
So from the table of standard normal distribution we get the z-score of the area 0.250 square unit as \(z = 0.67\)
And 0.250 square unit of the area covered in the standard normal distribution to the right of the first quartile.
We have to find the z-score that has an area of 0.250 square units to
the right of the z-score.
So from the table of standard normal distribution we get the z-score of the area 0.250 square unit as \(z = 0.67\)
Since the z-score of the first quartile lies to left of 0, thus the z-score of first quartile is \(z = -0.67\)
0

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.
