Ok.. I see that I did not completely define the polygon. The code below works fine

z <- pretty(c(-3,3), 100)
ht <- dnorm(z)
data <- data.frame(z=z, ht=ht)
zc <- 1.645
plot(data, type="n")
lines(data)
#segments(160,0,160,dnorm(160, m=160, sd=17), lty=2) t <- subset(data, data\$z>zc)
xvals <- t\$z
dvals <- t\$ht
polygon(c(xvals,rev(xvals)),c(rep(0,length(xvals)),rev(dvals)),col="red")

Hi.. I'm not sure why polygon returns an area above the standard normal curve.

z <- pretty(c(-3,3), 100)
ht <- dnorm(z)
data <- data.frame(z=z, ht=ht)
zc <- 1.645
plot(data, type="l")
lines(data)
t <- subset(data, z>zc)
polygon(t, col="red")

Thanks,
Lance
