mean=20, standard deviation =6.Use the emperical rule to estimate the probabilty that a randomly chosen patient had to wait more than 26 min. Of 2000 patients, estimate the # of patient having to wait more than 26 mins

Z = (scoremean)/SD
Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportion/probability related to the Z score. Multiply that probability by 2000 to get your second answer.
