Question

Suppose the mean height for men is 70 inches with a standard deviation of 2 inches. What percentage of men are more than 72 inches tall?

Answer #1

Let X denote the height of men.

Now, we can assume the heights are normally distributed.

Thus, (X is in inches)

the standard normal distribution.

Now, we need to find the percentage of men taller than 72 inches, which is given by:

which is the required answer.

Men heights are assumed to be normally distributed with mean 70
inches and standard deviation 4 inches; what is the probability
that 4 randomly selected men have an average height less than 72
inches?

The distribution of heights of adult men is approximately normal
with mean 69 inches and standard deviation of 2.5
inches.
a. What percent of men are shorter than 66 inches?
b. The distribution of heights of adult men is approximately
normal with mean 69 inches and standard deviation of 2.5 inches.
What is the probability that a man is taller than 74 inches?
c.. What is the probability that a man is between 70 and 72
inches tall?

Suppose the heights of 18-year-old men are approximately
normally distributed, with mean 71 inches and standard deviation 4
inches. If a random sample of twenty-eight 18-year-old men is
selected, what is the probability that the mean height x is between
70 and 72 inches?

Suppose that the mean height of all 6th graders is 46 inches
with a standard deviation of 2.5 inches. It is reasonable to assume
that these heights are normally distributed. Find the percentage of
6th graders who are under 47 inches tall. (round to three decimal
places)

2. The distribution of heights of young men is approximately
normal with mean 70 inches and standard deviation 2.5 inches.
a) Sketch a normal curve on which the mean and standard
deviation are correctly located. (It is easiest to draw the curve
first, locate the inflection points, then mark the horizontal
axis.)
b) What percentage of men are taller than 77.5 inches?
c) Between what two heights do the middle 95% of men's heights
fall?
d) What percentage of men...

Suppose the heights of 18-year-old men are approximately
normally distributed, with mean 71 inches and standard
deviation 2 inches.
1. What is the probability that an 18-year-old man selected at
random is between 70 and 72 inches tall? (Round your answer to four
decimal places.)

2. If a random sample of twenty-eight 18-year-old men is
selected, what is the probability that the mean height x
is between 70 and 72 inches? (Round your answer to four decimal
places.)

Assume the heights of men are normally distributed, with mean 73
inches and standard deviation 4 inches. If a random sample of nine
men is selected, what is the probability that the mean height is
between 72 and 74 inches? (Use 3 decimal places.)

15. Assume that the heights of men are normally distributed with
a mean of 70 inches and a standard deviation of 3.5 inches. If 100
men are randomly selected, find the probability that they have a
mean height greater than 71 inches. A. 9.9671

Suppose the heights of 18-year-old men are approximately
normally distributed, with mean 70 inches and standard deviation 6
inches.
(a) What is the probability that an 18-year-old man selected at
random is between 69 and 71 inches tall? (Round your answer to four
decimal places.)
(b) If a random sample of twenty 18-year-old men is selected,
what is the probability that the mean height x is between 69 and 71
inches? (Round your answer to four decimal places.)
(c) Compare...

Normal distribution height of men with a mean of 70.7 inches and a
standard deviation of 1.5 inches. If a one man is randomly selected
find the probability his height is between 60.5 inches and 74.1
inches.
