• statistics -

Z = (score-mean)/SD

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. For percent, multiply by 100.

What do you mean by "P30"?

Since the last question involves a distribution of means, use:

Z = (score-mean)/SEm

SEm = SD/√n

Use the same table.
