Question reads: The mean IQ among members of a club is 118 with a standard deviation of 9.46. What percentage of the members had IQ scores of 115 or higher?
My response,66.3% as follows: Find Zscore of 114 since question asks about 115 or higher (Z=.42), look up .42 in Z Table (16.28) and add to 50% (66.28%).

IQ is a normal gaussian distribution.
