I need to cancel **my** office hours this week.

If you need to meet with me, as always, feel free to send me an email.

Aaron will still hold his office hours on Thursday.

(For that matter send Aaron email if you can't make his either.)

Assume that the height of adult men is normally distributed with a mean of 69 in. and a standard deviation of 2.8 in.

- Randomly select 15 men from the population and measure their heights:

67.2 69.5 66.7 73.5 69.9 66.7 70.4 71.1 70.6 68.1 73.2 70.1 67.3 62.8 72.1
