Suppose the force acting on a column that helps to support a building is a normally distributed random variable ?X ?with mean value 15.0 kips and standard deviation 1.25 kips. Compute the following probabilities by standardizing and then using Table A.3. a. P(X ? 15) b. P(X ? 17.5) c. P(X ? 10) d. P(14 ? X ? 18) e. P(|X – 15 | ? 3 )

Q:Suppose the force acting on a column that helps to support a building is a normallydistributed random variable X with mean value 15.0 kips and standard deviation 1.25kips. Compute the following probabilities by standardizing and then using Table A.3 Step By Step SolutionStep 1 of 5: (a) Therefore is 0.5
