    Answer:

    the probability that a randomly selected South African man is taller than 72 inches is 0.2266

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The heights of South African men are Normally distributed with a mean of 69 inches and a standard deviation of 4 inches

    population mean(m) = 69 inches

    population standard deviation(s) = 4 inches

    Therefore, the number of standard deviation above mean (z score) = (x – m)/s

    In this case, x = 72 inches

    z score = (72 – 69)/4 = 3/4 = 0.75

    Probability that a randomly selected South African man is taller than 72 inches ┬áP(x>72) = 1 – P(x<72) = 1 – z(0.75) using the z table,

    P(x>72) = 1 – 0.77337 = 0.2266

    therefore, the probability that a randomly selected South African man is taller than 72 inches is 0.2266
