The personnel office at a large electronics firm regularly schedules job interviews and maintains records of the interviews. From the past records, they have found that the length of a first interview is normally distributed, with mean μ = 31 minutes and standard deviation σ = 7 minutes.

Z = (scoremean)/SD
Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportion/probability related to the Z score.
If the events are independent, the probability of both/all events occurring is determined by multiplying the probabilities of the individual events.
