    please explain how to solve for probability...
    If i have a class of 14 males and 36 females and the professor selects a name from the class using random sampling what is the probability that the first student selected will be a female?
    P=

    If the random sample of n=3 students is selected and the first two are both females what is the probability that the third student selected will be a male?
    p=

    If i have a mean = 0
    standard deviation =1

    z= -2.25 and z= +2.25
    p=____

    z= -2.50 and z = +2.50
    p=_____

    z= - 0.70 and z= +0.70

    How do i set this problem up to solve?
