so basically i know the mean is 27.78 and the std deviation is what
  • dumbcow
30% of 112 is 33.6 now you want to find out how many std dev's away this is from the mean z = (33.6-27.78)/4.57 = 1.27 now you have to look in a stats z table for probabilities of the standard normal distribution 1 - P(Z<= 1.27)
