They are asking for $\displaystyle E[X-550]$, and $\displaystyle \textrm{Var}(X-550)$. You should have some formulas that should make the preceding quite simple.

yes i figured out how to get the mean... i just simply take the temperatures that are off target and minus it to 550... i got that part but what i don't know how to get is the standard deviation.... would you happen to know how to calculate that based on my problem??
