Suppose that people's heights (in centimeters) are normally distributed, with a mean of 175 and a standard deviation of 6. We find the heights of 80 people.
(a) How many would you expect to be between 167 and 183 cm tall?
(b) How many would you expect to be taller than 170 cm?
Z = (score-mean)/SD
Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportion/probability related to the Z scores. Multiply that proportion by 80.
