Answer:

About twenty-one percent of twelve month old boys are shorter than 28.8 inches.

Problems of normally distributed samples are solved using the z-score formula.

In a set with mean and standard deviation , the zscore of a measure X is given by:

The Z-score measures how many standard deviations the measure is from the mean. After finding the Z-score, we look at the z-score table and find the p-value associated with this z-score. This p-value is the probability that the value of the measure is smaller than X, that is, the percentile of X. Subtracting 1 by the pvalue, we get the probability that the value of the measure is greater than X.

In this problem, we have that:

About twenty-one percent of twelve month old boys are shorter than what height?

This is the value of X when Z has a pvalue of 0.21. So it is X when Z = -0.805.

About twenty-one percent of twelve month old boys are shorter than 28.8 inches.
