### Tutoring on the Normal Distribution

Frank 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. Instead, you will be providing a step-by-step breakdown of the problems, including an explanation of why you did each step and using proper terminology.
