The weights of adult males are normally distributed with a mean of 172 lb and a standard deviation of 29 lb.
1.Find the weight that divides the upper 2% of weights from the lower 98%.
Can anyone please explain how to do this,I have no idea from where to begin.
Thanks.

Z = (scoremean)/SD
Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the Z score that fits that proportion.
Insert values in above equation to find weight score.
