Suppose that people's heights (in centimeters) are normally distributed, with a mean of 165 and a standard deviation of 6. We find the heights of 80 people.
(a) How many would you expect to be between 158 and 172 cm tall?

    Z = (score-mean)/SD

    Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportion between the Z scores. Multiply that by 80.
