I'm doing an on-line stats class and need some clarification.

info as follows:

mean=174.5centimeters

standard deviation = 6.9centimeters

What is the probability that 1 randomly selected person's height is greater than

185centimeters?

I calculated it as:

z= 185-174.5 / 6.9

z= 1.5

Using Z-Score table I determined 1.5 = .9332 resulting in 1-.9332 = .0668

So there is a 6.68% probability of 1 person's height being > 185centimeters.

So far so good; however the follow on question ask to find two heights that seperate the top 25% and the bottom 20% of the population.

Question 1: Using x = u + (z * standard deviation) for the top 25%, do I look up .25 on the table (-1.96) and solve for the top 25% height, because I get a number that is < the mean height of 174.5?

x=174.5 + (-1.96 * 6.9) = 160.976

Question 2: Is the process the same for the bottom 20%?

Appreciate any suggestions.
