S: 14 ≤ neck size <15
M: 15 ≤ neck size <16

  1. P(X < 14.0) = P((x - 15.7) / 0.7) < (14.0 - 15.7) / 0.7) = P(Z < -2.43) = 0.0076
    P(X < 18.0) = P((x - 15.7) / 0.7) < (18.0 - 15.7) / 0.7) = P(Z < 3.29) = 0.9995
    or use calc by typing in normalcdf(-99,-2.43) and normalcdf(-99,3.29)you get the same probabilities of .0076 and .9995

    P(14.0 < x < 18.0) = 0.9995 - 0.0076 = .9919 have their shirts in stock, 1-.9919 = .0081 do not have shirts in stock
