Question

IQ
scores are normally distributed with a mean of 100 and a standard
deviation of 15. Determine the 90th percentile for IQ scores

Answer #1

Solution:

We are given,

mean = = 100

SD = = 15

First, we need to translate the problem into an area or
probability. we can say the *k*th percentile of a set of
data divides the lower *k*% of a data set from the upper
(100-*k*)%. So the 90th percentile divides the lower 90%
from the upper 10% - That is it has about 90% below and about 10%
above.

Hence we have to find z for area 0.1

Using excel , =NORMSINV(0.1)

So, z = -1.28

Formula for finding IQ score is,

IQ score = = 100 - (-1.28)* 15

IQ score = 119

Therefore, the 90th percentile for IQ scores is about 119.

Done

scores are normally distributed with a mean of 100 and standard
deviation 15. what is the IQ score for an area of 0.9918
