Hi(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm wondering if someone can help me out on this question as to how to go about doing it:

X_1, X_2.... X_7 are independent random variables represnting a random sample of size 7 from the normal N(10, 7) distribution. Find to 3 dp probablitity that the sample total exceeds 88.

I tried to standardise this but my numbers don't seem to get me the answer of 0.005. Can someone help me out? Thanks in advance :)
