the heights of 1000 students in a college are normally distributed with a mean 5'10" and a SD of 2". Use 68% for the region from the mean to 1SD on either side; 94% for the region from the mean to 2SD on ether side and 98% for the region from the mean to 3SD on either side. Find the approximate number of students in each range of the heights:
5'8"  6"
5'6"  6'2"
Above 5'10"
below 6"
above 5'8"
5'8"  6'4"

Z score is the raw score in terms of standard deviations.
Z = (scoremean)/SD
Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportions related to the Z scores. Multiply by 1000.

I have no idea where to even start. Suppose heights of men are normally distributed with a mean 69.0 inches and standard deviation 2.8 inches. How many of a group of 1000 men would you expect to be between 70 and 72 inches tall?
