# Edexcel Stats 1 - Normal Distribution Watch

1. Hi guys! Was hoping to have help on a question... It's a regional paper, so cannot find it on Exam Solution. Would anyone give me a hand in explaining what to do with the following question, May 2013 (R)

The time, X minutes, taken to fly from London to another city has a normal distribution with mean μ minutes.
Given that P(X < μ – 15) = 0.35 (c) find P(X > μ + 15 | X > μ – 15).

Help would be very much appreciated! Thank you in advance

Sketch a curve

If P(X < μ – 15) = 0.35 then by symmetry P(X > μ + 15) = 0.35 and by definition P(X > μ – 15) = 1 - P(X < μ – 15)
