Assume that​ women's heights are normally distributed with a mean given by mu equals 63.4 in​, and a standard deviation given by sigma equals 1.8 in. Complete parts a and b.
a. If 1 woman is randomly​ selected, find the probability that her height is between 62.7 in and 63.7 in.
The probability is approximately
nothing. ​(Round to four decimal places as​ needed.)

1. Did you sketch your curve to see exactly what the question is asking? Then you have to find the z-scores from both ends and use your z-score table (and remember that it reads less than) so you have to do the right most bound - the left most bound.

2. the height range is from 7/18 s.d. below the mean to 3/18 above the mean

a z-score table will show the portion of the population that lies in this range
... the portion is equivalent to the probability

3. To do this type of question, typically you will need a set tables showing standard deviation values. These were traditionally found in the back of textbooks. Many books these days no longer have these, since much more accurate on-line applets will do the same thing.

Here is one of the best: http://davidmlane.com/normal.html

Make sure you have selected "Area from a value" (the default)
Fill in your mean and SD, then click on 'between' , filling in these values
