73-71 = 2

2/8 = .24 sigma below mean

go to normal distribution table

.5948 of distribution is below .24 sigma above mean

Z =Variable - Mean/ Standard deviation

Z =71-73/8

Z =-2/8

Z = -0.25

Z value -.25 = .401294

To find higher than 71

1 - .401294 = 0.5987

59.87 % will get a score higher than 71 on this exam.
