If X represents the marks obtained by the students, X ~Normal (65, 5)
P (A student scores above 75) = P(X>75) = P ((75-65)/5 < (X-65)/5 <∞)
= P(2<Z<∞), where Z-standard normal variate
= 0.5-0.4772, (0.4772 table value we have to refer Z table
P (A student scores above 75) = 0.0228 then q=0.9772
using binomial distn you can get the answer ((0..0677)
