adult males have normally distributed heights with mean of 69.0 in and a standard deviation of 2.8 in. if a clothing manufacture decides to produce goods that exclude the shortest 12% and the tallest 12% of adult males, find the minimum and maximum heights that they will fit.

Z = (scoremean)/SD
Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportion/probability (.12) and its Z score. Insert Z score in above equation to find heights.
