The time it takes to give a man a shampoo and haircut is normally distributed with a mean of 22 minutes and standard deviation of 3 minutes. Customers are scheduled every 30 minutes. (a) What is the probability that a male customer will take longer than the allocated time? *(b) If three customers are scheduled sequentially on the half hour, what is the probability that all three will be finished withintheir allocated halfhours time?

set your mean and standard deviation on the graph, then calculate the area below 30, that is the probability of getting a customer done. Cube it for three customers sequentially.
