I am attempting to find an unknown value given the probability of the range of X. I am unsure of how to calculate the value given the added constants defined in the problem and which values I need to use to look up the z-scores to plug into the x = z + μ(σ). I have found z given probability of 0.95 to be 1.644853. Not really sure if that is the correct value to use or how to go from here? Here is the problem: A random variable X has the distribution N(1500,(200)^2). Find B, where P(1500−B<X<1500+B)=0.95

You can normalize the distribution and convert N(1500, 200^2) to N(0, 1):
P(1500-B < X < 1500+B) = 0.95
P(-B/200 < (X - 1500)/200 < B/200) = 0.95
Then you should be able to look up the value for B/200 in the table to find where
P(-B/200 < Z < B/200) = 0.95 where Z = X μ σ = N(0, 1).
Then you can solve for B by setting that value you found in the table equal to B/200.

I'm curious what the phrase "on average" means. Here is an example:
On average, 30 % were further than ___ kilometers away when they had their accident.
Is 30 % a z-score or is it a mean? Transport Canada was investigating accident records to find out how far from their residence people were to when they got into a traffic accident. They took the population of accident records from Ontario and measured the distance the drivers were from home when they had their accident in kilometers (km). The distribution of distances was normally shaped, with µ = 30 kilometers and σ = 8.0 kilometers.

I had a question about an instantaneous z score. The question reads as
P ( z = 2 )
I think that this is 0, as z-score is the area under the curve and could be found by integrating the PDF over the range. As the range is 0, the area is also zero. Is that correct?

The Porsche Club of America sponsors driver education events that provide high-performance driving instruction on actual racetracks. Because safety is a primary consideration at such events, many owners elect to install roll bars in their cars. Deegan Industries manufactures two types of roll bars for Porsches. Model DRB is bolted to the car using existing holes in the car's frame. Model DRW is a heavier roll bar that must be welded to the car's frame. Model DRB requires 20 pounds of a special high alloy steel, 40 minutes of manufacturing time, and 60 minutes of assembly time. Model DRW requires 25 pounds of the special high alloy steel, 100 minutes of manufacturing time, and 40 minutes of assembly time. Deegan's steel supplier indicated that at most 40,000 pounds of the high-alloy steel will be available next quarter. In addition, Deegan estimates that 2000 hours of manufacturing time and 1600 hours of assembly time will be available next quarter. The pro?t contributions are $200 per unit for model DRB and $280 per unit for model DRW. The linear programming model for this problem is as follows:
Max 200DRB + 280DRW
s.t.
20DRB + 25DRW 40,000 Steel Available
40DRB + 100DRW ? 120,000 Manufacturing minutes
60DRB + 40DRW ? 96,000 Assembly minutes
DRB, DRW ? 0
