You have to find the z-score.

65-50 = 15 then divide by 10 which is z = 1.5

You can then use a z-table or a stat calculator to find the probablity less than 65%

Depending on the table, you may want to find the probability of z = 1.5 or greater and then subtract that number from 1 to get the less than.
