    I don't know how you are using Excel, except if it has the proportions of a normal distribution.

    Z = (score-mean)/SD = (score-360)/9

    Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the Z scores that correspond to the above proportions. Insert the Z scores in the equation above to find the scores(weights).
