deviation of 15 minutes. What is the probability that a student chosen at random will finish the test in more
than 110 minutes?

  • math -

    Z = (score-mean)/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.
