a) if a pilot is randomly selected, find the probability that his weight is between 150 lb and 191 lb.

please show all work as I need to understand


2) If np>5 and nq>5, estimate P (fewer than 3) with n =14 and p=0.4 by using the normal distribution as an approximation of the binomial distribution, if np<5 or nq<5, then state that the normal approximation is not suitable.

a) P(fewer than 3) = ________________ (round to four decimals)

b) the normal approximateion is not suitable?
