Do you mean standard error (SEm) or standard deviation (SD).

SEm = SD/√n, but no n is indicated.

If you meant SD, then use this equation.

Z = (score-mean)/SD

Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportion/probability (.0025 or .4975) and its Z score.

With equation above, calculate score for both ± Z.
