Here is an excellent applet that will do these kind of questions.

Unless I know what is considered a C in your country or region, I can't finish the problem for you

enter the mean, the standard deviation, then choose the "between" option

Enter the low end and the high end of your letter grade range.

(pushed the post button too early)

the result you get will be a decimal between 0 and 1, the probability.

multiply that by the number of students, the 43
