The distribution of heights of American women aged 18 to 24 is approximately normally distributed with mean 65.5 inches and standard deviation 2.5 inches. What is the probability that a randomly selected woman is over 70 inches tall?
Z = (score-mean)/SD
Calculate the Z score and find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportion related to that Z score.
