    enter 175 and 6 in the "mean" and "sd" boxes.
    click on the "betwee" button and enter 169 and 181 to get a range of .682689

    so the number of people out of 40 to be between 169 and 181 would be
    .682689(40) or appr. 27

    b) click on the "above" button and enter 170, then repeat as above
