So,

296-300/3

= -.77

Look at a standard normal distribution table

.2794 is the value from the table.

If you draw the curve, you will know that the area is to the left.

So, you subtract:

.5000- .2794

=.2206 is the probability.

I am not sure about the second part.

SEm = SD/√n

Use same table.
