Hello,

You can find the guided worksheets by signing into MyMathLab. Then select guided worksheets on the left hand side. Page 49 of the guided worksheet is really PDF page 57. At the top of the page you will see Normal Distributions. I attached the guided worksheet for just this question if that is easier for you. If you like it you can find the rest of the guided worksheets in MyMathLab.

Here is a video to help you with the discussion question. You will find information for both parts of the discussion question.

Additional videos to help if needed

Here is a video explaining normal distribution.
