a study of the amount of time it takes a mechanic to rebuild the transmission of a 1992 chevrolet cavalier shows that the mean is 8.4 hours and the standard deviation is 1.8 hours. if 40 mechanics are randomly selected, find the probability that their mean rebuild time exceeds 8.7 hours.

PsyDAG
Z = (mean1  mean2)/standard error (SE) of difference between means
SEdiff = √(SEmean1^2 + SEmean2^2)
SEm = SD/√(n1)
Since only one SD is provided, you can use just that to determine SEdiff.
Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportion related to that Z score.
