Use z-score tables to find out how many are less than 37.....then use table to find out how many are less than 29       subtract the #37 - #29

 

37   is 2 Standard deviations ABOVE 33     z score 2   corresponds to .9772

29   is 2 standard deviations BELOW 33     z score -2  corresponds to .0228

 

(.9772 - .0228) 400 = ~ 382     or     380 members
