Applications of Standard Deviation using sample population

The mean of a set of scores is $77$77 and

the standard deviation is $29$29. Find the value of:

a

$\text{Mean }-\text{Standard Deviation}$Mean −Standard Deviation

b

$\text{Mean }+2\times\text{Standard Deviation}$Mean +2×Standard Deviation

c

$\text{Mean }-\frac{\left(2\times\text{Standard Deviation}\right)}{3}$Mean −(2×Standard Deviation)3

d

$\text{Mean }+\frac{\left(4\times\text{Standard Deviation}\right)}{5}$Mean +(4×Standard Deviation)5

e

$\text{Mean }+3\times\text{Standard Deviation}$Mean +3×Standard Deviation

f

$\text{Mean }-2\times\text{Standard Deviation}$Mean −2×Standard Deviation
