  1. about 15 percent if you believe it was a normal distribution. Seldom it is.

  2. Here is another method.

    If it approximates a normal distribution, you can use

    Z = (score-mean)/SD

    Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportions related to the Z scores.
