Normal Practice Exercises
Assume all the data sets in these exercises follow a normal curve closely enough that a
normal approximation may be used. Use sketches as much as possible.

 The middle 95% of the values are between what two point values?
 The mean is 6 inches, standard deviation is 1.5 inches.
 Find the proportion of values below 6 inches.
 The shortest 16% are shorter than how many inches?
