Answer #1

a)

Convert the height to inches: x_man = 6 ft 3 in. = 6(12) + 3 = 75 in.

b)

ans = 98.66

c)

Convert the height to inches: x_woman = 5 ft 11 in. = 5(12) + 11 = 71 in.

d)

ans = 0.67%

a 5 ft 11" American woman is relatively taller than a 6 ft 3" American man because the percentage of women shorter than her is 99.33% while the percentage of men shorter than him is 98.66%.
