# Continuous Random Variables

Scores on a certain test have a mean of 75 and standard deviation of 5. Out of 100 random test papers, how many (rounded to the nearest integer) do we expect to have a score of at least 85?

**Note:** We **cannot** assume the distribution of scores is normal or approximately normal, we only know its mean and standard deviation.

Both the distributions depicted in the graph have a mean of 0 and a standard deviation of 1. Which one has higher kurtosis?

**Note:** The kurtosis of some random variable $X$ with standard deviation 1 is $\mathbb{E}[(X-\mu_X)^4].$

Consider the distribution with probability density function depicted in the graph. What is its skew?

**Note:** The skew of a random variable $X$ has the same sign as $\mathbb{E}[(X-\mu_X)^3].$
