Taller Young Women. In the document Anthropometric Reference Data for Children and Adults, C. Fryer et al. present data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey on a variety of human body measurements. A half-century ago, the mean height of (U.S.) women in their 20s was 62.6 inches. Assume that the heights of today’s women in their 20s are approximately normally distributed with a standard deviation of 2.88 inches. If the mean height today is the same as that of a half-century ago, what percentage of all samples of 25 of today’s women in their 20s have mean heights of at least 64.24 inches?
