Waiting times at a doctor office are normally distributed with a mean of 35 minutes, and a standard deviation of 10 minutes. What is the chance a patient would have to wait over 50 minutes?

1. 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 related to the Z score.
