Some psychologists believe that a "genius" should be defined as anyone having an IQ over 140. If IQ scores are normally distributed with a mean of 100 and a standard deviation of 17, and if the population of the world is 6,575,000,000, how many geniuses are there in the world today?

lol so this wont help me ? thanks anyway:)
We make the curve standard normal. \[(X-\mu)/(\sigma)\] (140-100)/17 that's a z score of 2.353. The probability of being that or higher can be looked up in a standard normal table. It is a probability of about .0094. Multiply this by the population of 6.575E9 to get the number of geniuses. I get 61,805,000 geniuses.
