Among the population of criminal justice students, the average score on the final exam was 74, with a standard deviation of 11.6. What is the probability of randomly selecting a student who earned an A (90 or better)?

Z = (scoremean)/SD
Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportion/probability in the smaller area related to the Z score.
