The height of 18-year-old men are approximately normally distributed, with mean of 68 inches and a standard deviation of 3 inches. What is the probability that an 18-year-old man selected at random is between 67 and 69 inches tall? Round your answer to the nearest thousandths place (3 places).

Use z-scores and a z-table to find your probability.

Formula:

z = (x - mean)/sd

mean = 68

sd = 3

Find two z-values, using 67 and 69 for x.

Next, check a z-table for the probability between the two z-scores.

I hope this will help get you started.
