If you have calculated the mean and standard deviation from a sample then you need to calculate the 1-st quartile from the sample, you can't get it from the maen and standard deviation.

If the mean and standard deviation are from a theoretical distribution you need to know what that distribution is to calculate the 1-st quartile.

In other words post the entire question.

it is normally distributed with a mean of 300 and a standard deviation of 70.
