Suppose that the distribution of pH readings for soil samples taken in a certain geographic region can be approximated by a normal distribution with mean 6.00 and standard deviation 0.10. The pH of a randomly selected soil sample from this region is to be determined.
a. What is the probability that the resulting pH is between 5.90 and 6.15?
b. What is the probability that the resulting pH exceeds 6.10?
c. What is the probability that the resulting pH is at most 5.95?
d. Describe the largest 5% of the pH distribution.
