Answer #1

Let random variable X denote the heights of men

Use z scores to compare the given values. The tallest living man
at one time had a height of 246 cm. The shortest living man at that
time had a height of 75.8 cm. Heights of men at that time had a
mean of 174.22 cm and a standard deviation of 7.07 cm. Which of
these two men had the height that was more extreme?
Since the z score for the tallest man is
and the z score for the...

The tallest living man at one time had a height of 241 cm. The
shortest living man at that time had a height of 126.5 cm. Heights
of men at that time had a mean of 170.29 cm and a standard
deviation of 6.72 cm. Which of these two men had the height that
was more extreme?
Since the z score for the tallest man is zequals
nothing and the z score for the shortest man is zequals

Men in the U.S have heights which are normally distributed with
a mean of 68 inches and a standard deviation of 2.5 inches. What
percentage of men have heights between 66 inches and 69.5 inches?
What height separates the shortest 6% of men from the 94% tallest
men?

Heights are generally normally distributed. Men have a mean of
69.5 inches and standard deviation 2.4 inches. Women have a mean of
63.8 inches and standard deviation 2.6 inches. The US Air Force has
a height requirement for their pilots to be between 64 inches and
77 inches.
Make sure you are rounding z-scores properly to two
places.
Part A: Find the two z-scores for women who meet this height
requirement z = (smaller value) and z
= (larger value)
Part B:...

Use z scores to compare the given values.
The tallest living man at one time had a height of 259 cm. The

of men at that time had a mean of 174.37 cm and a standard
deviation of
8.14 cm. Which of these two men had the height that was more
extreme?
Since the z score for the tallest man is z= blank and the z
score...
