Accepted Solution

Answer:A. 2.5 standard deviations below the average salary.Step-by-step explanation:Hello!Usually, when you calculate a probability of an X₀ value from a normally distributed variable you need to standardize it to reach the proper value. In this case, you already have the Z-value and need to reverse the standardization to obtain the X₀ value. Z= X₀ - μ δδ*Z = X₀ - μ X₀= (δ*Z) + μreplace Z= -2.50 X₀= (δ*-2.50) + μ X₀= μ - (δ*2.50)You can replace the Z value any time. I've just choose to do it at the end because it's more confortable for me.I hope it helps!
