    The sample mean of a population is a normal distribution with the same mean as the population, and standard deviation \[\sigma/\sqrt{n}\] where \[\sigma\] is the original population standard deviation. Now you should be able to solve this like any other normal distribution problem (find a z-value, etc...)
