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): 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 So... I don't know how to find it (maybe i miss something). Thanks!

$\Phi^{1}(0.025) = 1.960$ $\sigma = 4.86365$ $\dfrac{w  96}{ 4.86365} = 1.960$ $w = 86.467~g$

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?
