Question

Test scores in Mr. Smith's Stats class are normally distributed with a mean of 76 and a standard deviation of 10. Mr. Smith declared that 11.5% of his class didn't perform well on the test. What test score is at the upper limit of his test scores that didn't perform well on the test? (Meaning what is the test score that corresponds to the beginning bad grades on Mr. Smith's test.) Round to the nearest whole test grade.

Answer #1

Given that,

mean = = 76

standard deviation = =10

Using standard normal table,

P(Z > z) = 11.5%

= 1 - P(Z < z) = 0.115

= P(Z < z ) = 1 - 0.115

= P(Z < z ) = 0.885

= P(Z < 1.20 ) = 0.885

z =1.20 (using standard normal (Z) table )

Using z-score formula

x = z * +

x= 1.20 *10+76

x= 88

A.) A certain intelligence test has scores that are normally
distributed with a mean of 100 and a standard deviation of 10. An
individual takes the test and converts his score to a Z-score which
he calculates to be 1.5. This corresponds to an actual test score
of?
