Values of population not indicated. We do not know what is contained in Table 3. If Table 3 is the one I describe below, the answer is yes, if the distribution is approximately normal.

Z = (score-mean)/SD or SEm for distribution of means.

SEm = SD/√n

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.
