John drives to work each morning and the trip takes an average of μ = 38 minutes.
The distribution of driving times is approximately normal with a standard deviation of σ = 5
minutes. For a randomly selected morning, what is the probability that John’s drive to work
will take less than 35 minutes?

    Use z-scores.

    z = (x - mean)/sd

    With your data:

    z = (35 - 38)/5

    Finish the calculation, then check a z-table for the probability of less than 35 minutes using the z-score.

    I hope this will help get you started.
