A, B, C. Z = (scoremean)/SD
Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportion related to the Z scores you've found.
D, E. Reverse process from the same table. Use the % to find the Z score, then insert into the formula to find the score.
F. For Distribution of means, Z = (scoremean)/SEm (Standard Error of the mean)
SEm = SD/√(n1)
Use same table.

Here is a great normal distribution calculator

You can enter the data either directly or as zscores.
