1
Normal Distribution To understand the normal distribution To be able to find probabilities given the Z score To be able to find the Z score given the probability

2
Most commonly observed probability distribution 1800s, German mathematician and physicist Karl Gauss used it to analyse astronomical data Sometimes called the Gaussian distribution in science.

3
Normal Distribution Occurs naturally(e.g. height, weight,..) Centres around the mean Often called a bell curve

4
Normal Distribution Spread depends on standard deviation Percentage of distribution included depends on number of standard deviations from the mean

5
Properties of Normal Distribution Symmetrical Area under curve = 1

6
Standard Normal Distribution Mean ( =0 Standard deviation ( )=1

7
Standard Normal Distribution Z-scores are a means of answering the question ``how many standard deviations away from the mean is this observation?'' Tables are provided to help us to calculate the probability for the standard normal distribution, Z

8
Find P(Z<1.25) Tables give us P(Z

9
Find P(Z>1.25) Tables give us P(Z

10
a) Find P(Z < 1.52) It is vital that you always sketch a graph b) Find P(Z > 2.60) c) Find P(Z < -0.75) d) Find P(-1.18 < Z < 1.43)

11
a) Find P(Z < 1.52) SOLUTIONS P(Z < 1.52) = 0.9357

12
SOLUTIONS P(Z > 2.60) = 1 - 0.9053 = 0.0047 b) Find P(Z > 2.60)

13
SOLUTIONS P(Z 0.75) c) Find P(Z < -0.75) P(Z > 0.75) = 1 – P(Z < 0.75) P(Z > 0.75) = 1 – 0.7734 = 0.2266

14
SOLUTIONS P(Z<1.43) = 0.9236 d) Find P(-1.18 < Z < 1.43) P(Z>1.18) = 1-0.881 P(Z>1.18) = 0.119 P(-1.18

15
Reversing the process Given the probability find the value of a in P(Z0.5 then a is positive If the probability is <0.5 then a is negative

16
a) P(Z < a) = 0.7611 It is vital that you always sketch a graph b) P(Z > a) = 0.0287 c) P(Z < a) = 0.0170 d)P(Z > a) = 0.01 ASK ABOUT THIS ONE

17
SOLUTIONS a = 0.71 a) P(Z < a) = 0.7611 0.7611

18
SOLUTIONS a = 1.9 b) P(Z > a) = 0.0287 0.02870.9713

19
SOLUTIONS z = 2.12 so a = -2.12 c) P(Z < a) = 0.0170 0.0170 < 0.5 so a is negative 0.01700.9830

20
SOLUTIONS Use percentage points of normal distribution table which gives P(Z>z) d)P(Z > a) = 0.01 a = 2.3263

21
