9.415000
b. What is a Z score for a car with a price of $30,000?
8.557857
c. At what percentile rank is a car that sold for $30,000?

Z = (scoremean)/SD = (33,00023,000)/3500 = 10,000/3,500 = 2.86
Do the same for 30,000.
Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportion related to the second Z score.
