Use the Z score formula:
Z = (X  ƒÊ)/SD
After finding the appropriate Z scores in a table in the back of your statistics text called something like "areas under the normal distribution," insert that Z value into the formula to find the value of your score.
Some problems need you to determine the Z score before consulting this table to get a proprotion.
I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
