    Two Psychology majors, in 2 different sections of Clinical Psychology, were comparing test scores. The following gives the students' scores, class mean, and standard deviation for each section:
    Section 1 Section 2
    Score 84 75
    Mean 75 60
    Standard deviation 7 8

    What is the z-score of the student from section 1 and what is the probability that a student in section 1 will score higher than 84?
