Computing Z scores

#1
I am doing homework and i can't seem to figure out the correct answer.

Question: Men vs. Women
The average 20 - 29 year old man is 69.9 inches tall, with a standard deviation of 3.0 inches, while the average 20 - 29 year old woman is 64.6 inches tall, with standard deviation of 2.8 inches. Who is relatively taller, a 75 inch man or a 70 inch woman?

I would appreciate any help.

Compute the z scores for each:

Z(men) = (75-69.9)/3.0

Z(women) = (70-64.6)/2.8

Whoever has the larger Z score is "relatively" taller.
