## Description

#### Scenario

Frank has only had a brief introduction to statistics when he was in high school 12 years ago, and that did not cover inferential statistics. He is not confident in his ability to answer some of the problems posed in the course.

As Frank's tutor, you need to provide Frank with guidance and instruction on a spreadsheet he has partially filled out. Your job is to help him understand and comprehend the material. You should not simply be providing him with an answer as this will not help when it comes time to take the test.

Let 'z' represent the variable bone density score.

First we need to find the cumulative area under the curve for the z-score less than 1.94. For this, we plug in "=NOR
into the excel.
or, P(z < 1.94) = 0.974 (rounded to 3 decimal)

Next, we need to find the cumulative area under the curve for the z-score less than -0.78. For this, we plug in "=NO
0.78)" into the excel.
or, P(z < -0.78) = 0.218 (rounded to 3 decimal)
