  1. Disagree.

    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 of the Z score. Multiply by 100.

  2. You should have learned that 68% fall between +1 and -1 deviations of the mean.
    Since 20-25 is one standard deviation below the mean, without any calculation I know it is appr 34%
