Re: statistics

Hi cassrl;

I am getting for A) .608421 as the probability.

For B) you use the central Limit Theorem. Please try that now.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.
