Suppose the amount of time it takes for statistics students to complete their midterm is normally distributed with a mean of 85.70 minutes and a standard deviation of 22.55 minutes. If 10 students are randomly selected, what is the probability that they would average less than one and three-quarter hours to take their midterm?

• statistics -

Z = (score-mean)/SEm

SEm = SD/√(n-1)

Change all into minutes and calculate Z.

Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportion related to the Z score.
