    There is a 38.29% chance of the plant being 19 to 21 cm tall. This is found using the Normal CDF function on a TI89 in the stats/list editor. If use choose F5->Normal CDF->and then enter "Lower Value = 19", "Upper Value = 21", mean = "20" and S.D.="2" you will get this result. Otherwise you need to use a z-table.
