Tallest people a

As a group, the Dutch are amongst the tallest people in the world. The average Dutchman is 184 cm tall. If a normal distribution is appropriate, and the standard deviation for Dutchmen is about 8 cm, what is the percentage of Dutchmen will be over 2 metres tall?

Correct result:

p =  0.0228

Solution:

m=184 cm s=8 cm x=2 m cm=2 100  cm=200 cm  p=N(n,s)>x  p=0.0228=572500
