Anthony is deciding whether to go to graduate school in business or law. He has taken nationally administered aptitude tests for both fields. Anthony’s scores along with the national norms are shown here. Based solely on Anthony’s relative standing on these tests, which field should he enter? Assume that the scores on both tests are normally distributed.
Field µ σ Scores
Business 68 4.2 80.4
Law 85 3.6 89.8

8. You want to call a friend on the telephone. You remember the first three digits of her phone number, but you have forgotten the last four digits. What is the probability that you will get the correct number merely by guessing once? Other
9. Assume the IQ scores of the students at your university are normally distributed, with µ=115 and σ=8. If you randomly sample one score from this distribution, what is the probability it will be
a. Higher than 130?
b. Between 110 and 125?
c. Lower than 100? Cognitive
10. A standardized test measuring mathematics proficiency in sixth graders is administered nationally.

a. Higher than 62?
b. Between 40 and 65?
c. Lower than 45? education

probability he will get at least 13 questions correct?
14. A manufacturer of valves admits that its quality control has gone radically “downhill” such that currently the probability of producing a defective valve is 0.50. If it manufactures 1 million valves in a month and you randomly sample from these valves 10,000 samples, each composed of 15 valves,
