Many thanks for the reply, and you are correct. I was using the table wrong and now understand how it all works properly. Thanks for taking the time to reply.

Thanks for the reply, but I get that part. I was wondering about the values of 0.8779 and -0.5534
I think they are correct for the corresponding probabilities but the answer got different values.
So it's actually the Z1 and Z2 values I need checking. After that, I'm fine.

Homework Statement
A high jumper knows from experience that she can clear a height of at least 1.78m once in 5 attempts. She also knows that she can clear a height of at least 1.65m on 7 out of 10 attempts.
Find to 3 dp the mean and standard deviation of the heights the jumper can reach...
Cheers! I know the actualy calculation is done right. Just wasn't completly sure if I'd used the right method.
I stupidly left the notes I did for the question at University and I'm revising now at home so can't check over them.
