Step 1

Standard normal distribution:

The standard normal distribution is a special case of normal distribution, in which the mean of the distribution is 0 and standard deviation of the distribution is 1. That is X~N(µ, σ). The Z-scores can be calculated using the given formula.

Step 2

In this context, it is given that the mean number of Facebook friend’s users is 146 corresponding to its standard deviation of 58.

Denote X as the number of Facebook friends users.

In general, X follows normal with mean value of 146 and standard deviation of 58. That is X~...
