A final exam in Math 157 is normally distributed and has a mean of 75 with a standard deviation of 12. If 36 students are randomly selected, find the probability that the mean of their test scores is greater than 70.

Z = (mean1 - mean2)/standard error (SE) of difference between means

SEdiff = √(SEmean1^2 + SEmean2^2)

SEm = SD/√(n-1)(but you can use n)

If only one SD is provided, you can use just that to determine SEdiff.

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