b)repeat for the range 74 to 76.

Use zscores and a ztable for this problem. Because you are given a sample size, you will need to include the sample size in the calculation:
z = (x  mean)/(sd/√n)
For a):
This will be very close to 100% chance that the average of the draws will be in the range listed (zscores will be very large).
For b):
z = (74  75)/(10/√100)
z = (76  75)/(10/√100)
Finish the calculation for both zscores. Use the ztable to find the probability between the two scores.
I hope this will help get you started.
