  1. I took the easy way out and used the Java normal distribution tool tool at
    http://psych.colorado.edu/~mcclella/java/normal/accurateNormal.html

    Enter the mean and the sigma and the higher and lower weight units and then click "enter". The probable fraction with weights in that interval is 0.5896
    The answer (after multplying by 200 students) is 118

    The same result could be obtained by using a table of the error function.
