    z = (x – mean) / SD
    The z-score for x = 63 is: z = (63 – 65.5) / 2.5 = -1
    The z-score for x = 70.5 is: z = (70.5 – 65.5) / 2.5 = 2
    Therefore we need the probability that -1 < z < 2. This is equivalent to the probability that z < -1, subtracted from the probability that z < 2. From z-tables, we find that this is equal to 0.9772 – 0.1587 = 0.8185. This means that 81.85% of women’s heights fall within this range.
