ANSWERED A population of values has a normal distribution with $$\displaystyle\mu={133.5}$$ and $$\displaystyle\sigma={5.2}$$. You intend to draw a random sample of size $$\displaystyle{n}={230}$$.
Find the probability that a single randomly selected value is between 133.6 and 134.1.
$$\displaystyle{P}{\left({133.6}{<}{X}{<}{134.1}\right)}=$$? 2021-03-19

Given Information:
$$\displaystyle\mu={133.5}$$ and $$\displaystyle\sigma={5.2}$$
$$\displaystyle{n}={230}$$
To find the probability that a single randomly selected value is between 133.6 and 134.1:
z-score is a measure which tells how many standard deviations away a data value is from the mean and is given by the formula:
$$\displaystyle{z}={\frac{{{X}-\mu}}{{\sigma}}}$$
Required probability can be obtained as follows:
$$\displaystyle{P}{\left({133.6}{<}{X}{<}{134.1}\right)}={P}{\left({X}{<}{134.1}\right)}-{P}{\left({X}{<}{133.6}\right)}$$
$$\displaystyle={P}{\left({\frac{{{X}-\mu}}{{\sigma}}}{<}{\frac{{{134.1}-{133.5}}}{{{5.2}}}}\right)}-{P}{\left({\frac{{{133.6}-{133.5}}}{{{5.2}}}}\right)}$$
$$\displaystyle={P}{\left({Z}{<}{0.12}\right)}-{P}{\left({Z}{<}{0.02}\right)}$$
$$\displaystyle={0.54776}−{0.50798}={0.03978}\ \text{using standard table}$$
Using a standard normal table, look up for z-score 0.12 i.e., 0.1 in the row and 0.02 along the column. The intersection of both values is 0.54776.
Similarly, probability corresponding to z-score 0.02 is 0.50798.
Then, subtract the lower probability value from the higher value.
Therefore, probability that a single randomly selected value is between 133.6 and 134.1 is 0.0398.
