mu = location of the peak probability = 100

sigma^2 = variance = standard variation = 15

You may notice the part of the equation outside the exponential. This is called a normalizing factor. This factor adusts the height of the function depending on the value of sigma so the TOTAL area under the curve is 1. THis means if you the take the test, the probaility that you have any score is 1.

The probability of getting some score between two values is simply the integral of the curve between these two scores. However, it's usless trying to actually do the integral. You need to look up the gaussian integrals in a table.
