I have no idea how to calculate z scores

Weights of the vegetables in a field are normally distributed. From a sample Carl Cornfield determines the mean weight of a box of vegetables to be 180 oz. with a standard deviation of 8 oz. He wonders what percent of the vegetable boxes he has grouped for sale will have a weight between 169 oz. and 191 oz. Carl decides to answer the following questions about the population of vegetables from these sample statistics.

Carl calculates the z-score corresponding to the weight 169 oz. (to the nearest tenth).
Using the table, Carl sees the percentage associated with this z-score is a

  1. Z = (score-mean)/SD

    Use your table or find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportions/probabilities of Z scores to the mean. Add.
