    Use z-scores. You need to find two z-scores, then find the proportion between the two using a z-table.

    z = (x - mean)/sd

    For the first z:
    x = 15
    mean = 16
    sd = 5

    For the second z:
    x = 23
    mean = 16
    sd = 5

    Plug the values into the formula and calculate to find the two z-scores. Then check a z-table for the proportion between the two.
