Part (i) tests the student on the concept of addition and multiplication of normal distributions.
Part (ii) tests the student on using the Binomial distribution as a means to solve a problem.
Part (iii) tests the student on the idea of sample mean for a normal distribution as well as standardization to the standard normal distribution and using the inverse-norm function in the GC.
