1. Z = (score-mean)/SD

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.

2. Same, except to get probability that all events occur, multiply the probabilities of the individual events.

3. Since you are now dealing with the *mean* of the 4 packs, the equation becomes:

Z = (score-mean)/SEm

SEm = SD/√n

Use same table.
