Hello ,
I started a Statistics class a few weeks ago and i'm still pretty lost. Could someone explain to me how I should resolve this following problem ? Please.

On the math SAT taken in 1994, the average score for men was 500 and the average score
for women was 460. The histograms for men and for women each follow the normal curve.
The SD for men and women are equal to 120.

a) What percentage of men scored above 600 on the exam?
b) What percentage of women scored above 600 on the exam?
c) When do you expect the average and the median to be the same and when are they
different?

I have no clue. I would appreciate any help.

What is my hypothesis (NULL and Alternative)
What are my IV(s) and DV(s)
What type of data are each of the variables (i.e., continuous, categorical, ordinal etc.)

Answer these and then we can move forward with selecting an appropriate test.

They aren't interested in tests. This is just a probability question. For something like this it would probably be more appropriate to say

1) List the random variables and their corresponding distributions
2) From the questions you're being asked in terms of probability statements
3) Solve using expert probability-fu
