The distribution of GPAs is normally distributed with a mean of 2.7 pounds and a standard deviation of 0.3. Approximately what percentage of students has GPAs above 3.0?

The best answer to this statistic question would be 15.7% or, if rounded off, 16%. This is because those students who have GPAs are approximately at least 1 standard deviation away from the mean and more - which means that 84% of the GPAs are less then 3 pounds. I subtracted 84 from 99.7 (which is the whole distribution's percentage) and came up with 15.7.
