Question 791:Serum cholesterol levels were taken from a population of 10,000 college students. The results were normally distributed. Males had a mean of 195 and a standard deviation of 10. Females had a mean of 185 and a standard deviation of 12.
Concern was expressed by the health educators that students with serum cholesterol levels above 200 might be at an increased risk of heart disease. If the campus was equally divided between males and females, how many students would be at increased risk?
