  • statistics help wanted -

    If you list the subject where is says "subject", instead of the university, you will usually get quicker results.

    Since they are asking for a solution using Excel, I can't help you. There are many other ways to do this problem.

  • statistics -

    I don't use Excel.

    Z = (score-mean)/SD

    Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportions and their corresponding Z scores. Insert values into equation above and calculate the scores.
