Step 1

Let X be the random variable that represents the scores .It is given that X follows normal distribution with mean = 435 and standard deviation = 72.

(a)

It is required to find the value of x1 and P(X > x1) = 0.30.

The value of x1 can be calculated as follows

Step 2

In the standard normal table, the z-value corresponding to the probability 0.70 is +0.524. Thus,

Step 3

So, the passing scores in examina...
