Step 1
Given:
\(\displaystyle\mu={192.6}\),
\(\displaystyle\sigma={34.4}\),
\(\displaystyle{n}={173}\).
The Z-score follows standard normal distribution.
Step 2
\(\displaystyle{P}{\left[{X}{<}{186.1}\right]}={P}{\left[{\frac{{{X}-\mu}}{{\sigma}}}{<}{\frac{{{186.1}-{192.6}}}{{{34.4}}}}\right]}\)
\(\displaystyle={P}{\left[{Z}{<}-{0.19}\right]}={0.4247}\) (Use standard normal table)
The probability that a single randomly selected value is less than 186.1 is 0.4247.
