Statistics Hello :) Can you help me please about the next exercise: The weight of a thirdgeneration mobile phone is normal (normal distribution), with an average of 96 grams. It is known that 90% of these phones are between 88 grams and 104 grams. The first question was to find standard deviation of the phones weight, I found it (if I didn't made a mistake): https://i.imgur.com/HbBEfnH.png So the standard deviation is 4.863 (from table Z). Now there is another question: What is the weight that only 2.5% of these phones weigh less? I tried to find but i had insane answers :o So... I don't know how to find it (maybe i miss something). Thanks! 
$\Phi^{1}(0.025) = 1.960$ $\sigma = 4.86365$ $\dfrac{w  96}{ 4.86365} = 1.960$ $w = 86.467~g$

I just didn't understand why exponentiation of minus 1.

It's the same old table lookup you're used to doing.

it's the symbology for an inverse function

There is another question in same exercise (which I wrote in the current post), can you tell me please if I solved correctly? The question is: What is the relative frequency of 3G (thirdgeneration) phones weighing more than 100 grams? My answer: Because of normal distribution and there is 90% in 88104 grams, then in 100104 grams there is 22.5%, and above 104 there is 5%, therefore the answer is 22.5%+5%=27.5%=0.275 Right?

If the question was about less than 100 grams, then the answer was only: Φ((100−96)/4.86365) Right?
