the average of final exam is 64, the standard deviation is 7. If the teacher set a rule that 1/4 of students who receive the poor grades should stay after class. lower than what mark should the students stay in school?

does anyone know how to solve this?

my friend came out with the following solution.

P(Z<-0.675)=0.25

-0.675= (X-64)/7

but i'm kinda confused.

where did the 0.675 come from?

Good question; ask your friend. It makes no sense. See the link I posted.
