176 pounds - 165 pounds =  11 pounds      this is      11/ 11.6  standard deviation less than the mean = - .9483 z-score =~ .95 z score

 

 

 

Look at negative z-score table for the value under -.95 z-score  to find the fraction .1711

.1711 x 120 members = 20.53 members are LESS than 165#   that means      100 members weigh MORE than 165#
