**MathGuru**, Monday, March 18, 2013 at 6:17pmA few hints:

A. First quartile is the 25th percentile.

B. Second quartile (median) is the 50th percentile.

C. 95th percentile is most of the distribution.

Find the z-scores using a z-table for each of these percentiles.

Use z-score formula to find the scores at each percentile.

Formula:

z = (x - mean)/sd

mean = 550

sd = 100

Solve for x in each case.

Note: In a normal distribution, the mean, median, and mode are the same.
