The mean is p*N = 50
where p is the probability of getting gthe correct answqer by guessing at random. N is the number of tosses
The variance is p(1 p)N = 25
The standard deviation is
ó = sqrt25 = 5.
Use a normal ditributuion curve for the probability of getting a score of 65 or better. You are talking 3 sigma from the mean.
