A psychologist has devised a stress test for dental patients sitting in the waiting rooms. According to this test, the stress scores (on a scale of 1 to 10) for patients waiting for root canal treatments are found to be approximately normally distributed with a mean of 7.59 and a standard deviation of .73.
a. What percentage of such patients have a stress score lower than 6.0?
b. What is the probability that a randomly selected root canal patient sitting in the waiting room has a stress score between 7.0 and 8.0?
c. The psychologist suggests that any patient with a stress score of 9.0 or higher should be given a sedative prior to treatment. What percentage of patients waiting for root canal treatments would need a sedative if this suggestion is accepted?
