(1) Given `mu=60,sigma=15` find `P(x>67)`

First convert 67 to a standard z-score: `z=(67-60)/15=7/15=.4bar(6)`

Then `P(x>67)=P(z>7/15)` . In a TI-83/84 calculator you follow the following steps:

2nd VARS (dist)->2 (normalcdf)

On the homescreen you will see normalcdf(

Input `7/15`

Then ,

Then ``2nd , (EE) 99

Close parantheses and hit enter....

Close parantheses and hit enter. The result should be .3203692025

**Alternatively, you can skip converting to a standard z-score. Input normalcdf(67,E99,60,15) and you will get .3203692025 as before. The format is normalcdf`(a,b,mu,sigma)` where a is the lower limit and b the upper limit.

--------------------------

**Thus `P(x>67)~~.3204` **

--------------------------

** This is the area under the standard normal curve from .466666667 to infinity **

(2) Input normalcdf(-E99,70,63,14) and the result should be .6914624678

** Make sure to use the opposite key "-", not the subtract key.**

----------------------------------

`"Then" P(xlt70)~~.6915`
