b) what is the probability that a dog weighs less than 42.2lbs

c) what is the probability that a dog weighs between 26.2 and 44lbs

for the following 2problems, first find z (x = μ + z σ)

d) the probability that all dogs weigh less than x1 lbs is 0.6700; what is the weight x1?

e) the probability that all dogs weigh less than x2lbs is 0.1003; what is the weight x2?
