    Find z.

    z = (x - mean)sd

    mean = np
    sd = √npq

    n = 100
    p = .32
    q = 1 - p = .68

    Substitute 40 for x in the formula. Calculate mean and standard deviation. Plug in the other values. Find z, then check z-table for your probability.

    I hope this will help get you started.
