Let's find out the probability that a randomly selected individual is taller than I am. We will use some data from a textbook dataset and examine the descriptive statistics first. Note that the data appears to be approximately normally distributed - I describe what that means in more detail.
We find that I am actually pretty tall - at least taller than 92% of the females in this data set.
Thanks to David M. Lane for the help - use this site for fun.
