Question

Suppose the grade on a Math test is normally distributed with mean 78 and standard deviation 10.

(c) Rob achieved a grade that exceeded 95% of all grades. Find Rob’s actual grade.

(d) Suppose 32% of students did better than Mei. Find Mei’s actual grade.

Please explain the z=score/z=table process

Answer #1

Solution:

Given that,

mean = = 78

standard deviation = = 10

c)

P(Z > z ) = 95%

1 - P(Z < z ) = 0.95

P(Z < z ) = 1 - 0.95

P(Z < z ) = 0.05

P(Z < -1.65) = 0.05

z = -1.65

Using z-score formula,

X = z* +

= -1.65 * 10 + 78

= 61.5

Rob’s actual grade is 61.5

d)

P(Z > z ) = 32%

1 - P(Z < z ) = 0.32

P(Z < z ) = 1 - 0.32

P(Z < z ) = 0.68

P(Z < 0.47) = 0.68

z = 0.47

Using z-score formula,

X = z* +

= 0.47 * 10 + 78

= 82.7

Mei’s actual grade is 82.7

Suppose that SAT math scores are normally distributed with a
mean of 516 and a standard deviation of 115, while ACT math scores
have a normal distribution with a mean of 22 and a standard
deviation of 5. James scored 650 on the SAT math and Jacob scored
29 on the ACT math. Who did better in terms of the standardized
z-score?
Group of answer choices
James
Jacob
They did relatively the same.
Impossible to tell because of the scaling

A math professor notices that scores from a recent test are
normally distributed with a mean of 70 and a standard deviation of
4.
(a) What score do 75% of the students test scores fall
below?
Answer:
(b) Suppose the professor decides to grade on a curve. If the
professor wants 2.5% of the students to get an A, what is the
minimum score for an A?
Answer:

1) Suppose the scores on a Math exam and an English exam are
both normally distributed, with the Math: N(60,20) and English
(60,10). Barney gets an 80 on both tests.
a) On which test did he do better relative to his class
mates?
b) How many students did better than Barney on each exam?

Suppose that the class marks on your last history test were

Suppose a college math scores are approximately normally
distributed with mean μ=70 and standard deviation σ=10.
a. What score should a student aim to receive to be in the 95th
percentile of the math scores?
b. You took a random sample of 25 students from this population.
What is the probability that the average score in the sample will
be equal to or greater than 75?

the minimum score for an A?
