40.65% of these mothers are between the ages of 32 to 40

23.27% of these mothers are less than 30 years old

37.07% of these mothers are more than 38 years old

Step-by-step explanation:

Problems of normally distributed samples can be solved using the z-score formula.

In a set with mean and standard deviation , the zscore of a measure X is given by: The Z-score measures how many standard deviations the measure is from the mean. After finding the Z-score, we look at the z-score table and find the p-value associated with this z-score. This p-value is the probability that the value of the measure is smaller than X, that is, the percentile of X. Subtracting 1 by the pvalue, we get the probability that the value of the measure is greater than X.

In this problem, we have that: What percent of these mothers are between the ages of 32 to 40?

This is the pvalue of Z when X = 40 subtracted by the pvalue of Z when X = 32.

X = 40    has a pvalue of 0.7257

X = 32    has a pvalue of 0.3192

0.7257 – 0.3192 = 0.4065

40.65% of these mothers are between the ages of 32 to 40

What percent of these mothers are less than 30 years old?

This is the pvalue of Z when X = 30.    has a pvalue of 0.2327

23.27% of these mothers are less than 30 years old

What percent of these mothers are more than 38 years old?

This is 1 subtracted by the pvalue of Z when X = 38.    has a pvalue of 0.6293

1 – 0.6293 = 0.3707

37.07% of these mothers are more than 38 years old
