 Question 629672: Here is my problem, I do not fully understand but the work I have done so far has me thinking that the probability that a randomly sampled score based on the example would be equal to or greater than a score of 134 is 4.01% In a research study, you measured the weights of all learners in a college freshman class. The normally distributed set of scores for the population of learners has a mean of 120 pounds and a standard deviation of 8 pounds. If you randomly sampled one score from the population, what is the probability it would be equal to or greater than a score of 134? How would you briefly explain the results.
