Answer:required value of c = 79.94.Step-by-step explanation:Let x denotes the exam score.

Given: The mean score is 76 and the standard deviation is 11.

to detrmine c , such that the probability of a student having a score greater than c is 36 %.

or P(x>c)=0.36

Using z-score table , we get

z= 0.3584 [z-value corresponds to p-value of 0.36(one-tailed) is 0.3584]

Formula for z:

hence, required value of c = 79.94.
