find the zscore! which will tell you how many standard deviation you are away from the mean.
formula: http://mathworld.wolfram.com/zScore.html
Then, look at the z score table in order to find the probability that corresponds to the zscore you found. This will give you the percentile!

Mary,
I think it is time for you to review your class notes to understand what zscores are related to probability. If you have difficulty working out the solution with the above help given, you will have the same problems in your exams coming up in a month or so.
If you happened to be absent from class on this subject, you can start with reading up your textbook, or other articles such as:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Standard_deviation
Repost if you have problems understanding the material.
