# Question

A. K. Shah published a simple approximation for areas under the normal curve in The American Statistician (Feb. 1985). Shah showed that the area A under the standard normal curve between 0 and z is
a. Use Shah’s approximation to find
i. P(0 < z < 1.2)
ii. P(0 < z < 2.5)
iii. P(z > .8)
iv. P(z < 1.0)
b. Find the exact probabilities in part.
c. Shah showed that the approximation has a maximum absolute error of .0052. Verify this for the approximations in part a.
