Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Are you sure the standard deviation is only 10? That's an incredibly narrow normal curve.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Aha! 625  500 = 125, which is 1.25 standard deviations from the mean (i.e. the zscore is 1.25). Look up the normal table. Area from 0 to z is 0.3944. Area from 0 to infinity is 0.5. Add the two together to get the area from infinity to z=1.25 = 0.8944. So, 89.44% of students get less than 625.
