```Many thanks to the authors of IB Mathematical Studies Standard Level: For the IB diploma (International Baccalaureate) by

Information from this book has been used in this PowerPoint.
The properties of a normal distribution:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
It is a bell-shaped curve.
It is symmetrical about the mean, μ. (The mean, the mode and the median all
have the same value).
The x-axis is an asymptote to the curve.
The total area under the curve is 1 (or 100%).
50% of the area is to the left of the mean, and 50% to the right.
Approximately 68% of the area is within 1 standard deviation, σ, of the mean.
Approximately 95% of the area is within 2 standard deviations of the mean.
Approximately 99% of the area is within 3 standard deviations of the mean
The expected value is found by multiplying the number in the sample by the
probability.

Example 1
The waiting times for a elevator are normally distributed with a mean of 1.5 minutes and a
standard distribution of 20 seconds.
a) Sketch a normal distribution diagram to illustrate this information, indicating clearly the
mean and the times within one, two and three standard deviations of the mean.
b) Find the probability that a person waits longer than 2 minutes 10 seconds for the elevator.
c) Find the probability that a person waits less than 1 minute 10 seconds for the elevator.
200 people are observed and the length of time they wait for an elevator is noted.
d) Calculate the number of people expected to wait less than 50 seconds for the elevator.
Example 1

standard distribution of 20 seconds.
a) Sketch a normal distribution diagram to illustrate this information, indicating clearly the

2 minutes 10 seconds = 130 seconds
2.5% or 0.025
Using symmetry about μ, and the fact that approximately 95% of the area is within
2 standard deviations of the mean, the two shaded areas together = 5%.
So the probability of waiting longer than 2 mins 10 secs is 2.5%, or 0.025.

b) Find the probability that a woman has a height between 1.56m and 1.74m. 81.5%
The area between μ – 2σ and μ = 47.5% because 95% of the whole area is within
2 standard deviations of the mean. The area between μ and μ + σ= 34% because 68%

c) Find the expected number of woman with a height greater than 1.8m.
We can see that the shaded area represents a probability of 2.5%, because 95% of the area is

You can use the GDC to calculate values that are not whole multiples of the standard deviation
(or of course even if they are!)
Packets of coconut milk are advertised to contain 250ml. Akshat tests 75 packets.
He finds that the contents are normally distributed with a mean volume of 255ml and a
standard deviation of 8 ml.

Find the probability that a packet contains more than 250ml.

The lifetime of a light bulb is normally distributed with a mean of 2800 hours and a standard

a) Find the percentage of light bulbs that have a lifetime of less than 1950 hours. 2.95%
b) Find the percentage of light bulbs that have a lifetime of between 2300 and 3500 hours.

So the percentage of light bulbs that have a
lifetime of less than 1950 hours is 2.95%
You can see from the sketch that indeed the answer
should be a little more than 2.5%, because there
would be 2.5% with a lifetime of less than 1900 hours.

Inverse normal calculations
Sometimes you are given the percentage area under the curve, i.e. the probability or the
proportion, and you are asked to find the value corresponding to it. This is called an inverse
normal calculation.
Always make a sketch to illustrate the information given.
You must always remember to use the area to the left
when using your GDC. If you are given the area to the
right of the value, you must subtract this from 1 (or 100%)
For example, an area of 5% above a certain value means
there is an area of 95% below it.
95%
5%
Example 4
The volume of cartons of milk is normally distributed with a mean of 995ml and a standard
deviation of 5ml.
It is known that 10% of the cartons have a volume of less than x. Find the value of x. 989ml
Sketching the normal distribution diagram gives
a clear idea of what is happening.
The shaded area represents 10% of the cartons.
Enter the percentage given as a decimal, the
mean, and the standard deviation, in order,
with commas between.
In this case: 0.1, 995, 5)
The solution on the calculator is 988.5922422
