Assume that a population is normally distributed with a mean of 100 and a standard deviation of 15. Would it be unusual for the mean of a sample of 3 to be 115 or more? Why or why not?

Use zscores:
z = (x  mean)/(sd/√n)
x = 115
mean = 100
sd = 15
n = 3
Once you have z, use a ztable to determine probability. If the probability is low, then it would be unusual for the mean of a sample of 3 to be 115 or more.
I hope this will help.
