The scores on a standardized test are normally distributed with the mean of 750 and standard deviation 70. Find the probability that a score is more than 890.

This is from my Math Models class. I am not taking Statistics. Please someone show me how to do answer this-I don't just want an answer. I want the steps!!

this just involves using the Z table.

890 is 140 away from the mean.

That's 140/70 = 2σ

So, find where Z>2. That's your probability. To play around some with this, visit
