you should know that if two normal random variables $X \sim N(\mu_x, \sigma_x),~Y \sim N(\mu_y, \sigma_y)$ then $X + Y \sim N\left(\mu_x+\mu_y,\sqrt{\sigma_x^2 + \sigma_y^2}\right)$ and $c X \sim N(c \mu_x, c \sigma_x)$ so the mean of $N$ identically distributed normal random variables, $X$, will be distributed as $\bar{X} \sim N\left(\mu_x, \dfrac{\sigma_x}{\sqrt{N}}\right)$ this should let you complete part 3
