Hi,

we all like to do the home work of students!

NSolve[{Integrate[
     PDF[NormalDistribution[0, 1], z], {z, (c - 75)/10/Sqrt[n],
      Infinity}] == 5/100,
   Integrate[
     PDF[NormalDistribution[0, 1], z], {z, (c - 78)/10/Sqrt[n],
      Infinity}] == 9/10
   }, {c, n}]

??

Next time, make your home work *alone* because otherwise
you will learn nothing.

Regards
   Jens
