Engineers want to design seats in commercial aircraft so that they are wide enough to fit 95% of all males. (Accommodating 100% of males would require very wide seats that would be much too expensive.) Men have hip breadths that are normally distributed with a mean of 14.9 in. and a standard deviation of 0.9 in. Find P95. That is, find the hip breadth for men that separates the smallest 95% from the largest 5%. The hip breadth for men that separates the smallest 95% from the largest 5% is P95 = in. (Round to one decimal place as needed.)
