Question

For a population with a mean of u = 100 and a standard deviation of o = 20

a. Find the z-score for each of the following X values.

X = 108 X = 115 X = 130

X = 90 X = 88 X = 95

b. Find the score ( X value) that corresponds to each of the following z-scores.

z = -0.40 z = -0.50 z = 1.80

z = 0.75 z = 1.50 z = -1.25

Answer #1

Solution:

Z = (x - ) /

a)

X = 108

Z = (108 - 100) / 20 = **0.4**

X = 115

Z = (115 - 100) / 20 = **0.75**

X = 130

Z = (130 - 100) / 20 = **1.5**

X = 90

Z = (90 - 100) / 20 = **-0.5**

X = 88

Z = (88 - 100) / 20 = **-0.6**

X = 95

Z = (95 - 100) / 20 = **-0.25**

b)

X = z * +

z = -0.40

X = -0.40 * 20 + 100 = **92**

z = -0.50

X = -0.50* 20 + 100 = **90**

z = 1.80

X = 1.80* 20 + 100 = **136**

z = 0.75

X = 0.75* 20 + 100 = **115**

z = 1.50

X = 1.50* 20 + 100 = **130**

z = -1.25

X = -1.25* 20 + 100 = **75**

4.For a population with a mean of μ = 40 and σ = 11, find the
z–score for each of the following X values. (Note: You probably
will need to use a formula and a calculator to find these
values)
X = 45: z =_____ X = 52: z =_____X = 41: z =_____
X = 30: z =_____X = 25: z =_____X = 38: z =_____

It is widely accepted that the overall population has a mean
I.Q. score of 100 with a standard deviation of 15 that is normally
distributed. A researcher wants to find out if incoming college
freshman that have identified as being math majors have a higher
I.Q. than the overall population. The scores below are a random
sample of the I.Q. scores for incoming freshman that have
identified as math majors. Use this sample to test the claim that
incoming freshman...
