A particular fruit's weights are normally distributed, with a mean of 353 grams and a standard deviation of 6 grams.

If you pick one fruit at random, what is the probability that it will weigh between 334 grams and 344 grams?

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 between those two Z scores.
