    a. Sample mean not given, expect normality.

    b. Without more info, expect sample mean = pop. mean

    c. SEm = SD/√(n-1), but you can just use n

    d, e, f. Z = (score-mean)/SEm

    Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportions related to these Z scores.
