Since a bell-shaped curve is symmetric, one-half of the

What Last Example:
Last The army reports that the distribution of head
circumferences among male soldiers is
approximately normal with mean 22.8 inches and
standard deviation 1.1 inches.
1. What percentage of soldiers have a head
circumference between 21.7 and 23.9
2. A circumference of 25 inches would be what
3. What % have a head greater than 25? Homework:
