Normal Probability of mean download time for the H&R Block website

The mean download time for the H&R Block website, www.hrblock.com is 2.5 seconds. Suppose that the download time is normally distributed, with a standard deviation of 0.5 second. What is the probability that a download time is:

a) Less than 1 second
b) Between 0.5 and 1.5 seconds
c) Above 0.5 seconds?
d) Above how many seconds are 99% of the download times?
