1. The proportion of children that have an index of at least 110 is 0.0478.

Step-by-step explanation:

The given distribution has a mean of 90 and a standard deviation of 12.

Therefore mean, = 90 and standard deviation, = 12.

It is given to find the proportion of children having an index of at least 110.

We can take the variable to be analysed to be x = 110.

Therefore we have to find p(x < 110), which is left tailed.

Using the formula for z which is p( Z < ) we get p(Z < = 1.67).

So we have to find p(Z ≥ 1.67) = 1 – p(Z < 1.67)

Using the Z – table we can calculate p(Z < 1.67)  = 0.9522.

Therefore p(Z ≥ 1.67) = 1 – 0.9522 = 0.0478

Therefore the proportion of children that have an index of at least 110 is 0.0478
