Answer:

0.110

0.230

Step-by-step explanation:

Given :

In health :

Average salary, m = 51,541

Standard deviation, s = 11000

In Business :

Average salary, m = 53,901

Standard deviation, s = 15000

Since distribution is approximately normal ;

We can obtain the standardized scores and find the probability ;

Zscore = (x – mean) / standard deviation

Probability of earning salary if atleast $65,000

Health:

P(Z ≥ (65000 – 51541) / 11000) = P(Z ≥ 1.224) = 0.11048 (Z probability calculator)

Business :

P(Z ≥ (65000 – 53901) / 15000) = P(Z ≥ 0.740) = 0.22965 (Z probability calculator)

Hence, the probability of earning a starting salary of atleast $65,000 is :

Health = 0.11048

Business = 0.22965
