Z = (score  mean)/SD
Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportion above that Z score.
Z = (mean1  mean2)/standard error (SE) of difference between means
SEdiff = √(SEmean1^2 + SEmean2^2)
SEm = SD/√(n1)
Since only one SD is provided, you can use just that to determine SEdiff.
Use same table.
