Step 1

a)

As alpha level is given and two-tailed hypothesis test is used then before treatment z-score value is calculated as 1.96 using z table. Standard error is calculated as follows:

Step 2

Now, X value before treatment is calculated as:

Step 3

Now calculate the probability of X greater than 10...
