    normal distribution

    The lengths of 100 pipes have a normal distribution with a mean of 102.4 inches and a standard deviation of 0.2 inch. If one of the pipes measures exactly 102.1 inches, what percentile does its length lie in?

    Thanks for the help

    Calculate Pr(X > 102.1) and link the answer to the definition of percentile.
