Cannot answer a and b unless you know point value for B and F. Once you find the point values, use the equation below.
c. Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportion (.92) for a Z score. Put Z score and other values into the equation below and solve.
Z = (scoremean)/SD
