    a. Use same process as previous post.

    b. Because you are dealing with means (average) rather than individual scores:

    Z = (score-mean)/SEm

    SEm = SD/√n

    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.
