    Normal Distribution Question

    Suppose that 11,877 students in New Zealand sat a mathematics exam, and 3.6% of these students scored 85% or higher.

    Does this conform to a Normal distribution?

    What is the theoretical expected value of students who should score 85% or more?

    What % of students scored 88% or more?
