**PsyDAG**, Friday, February 8, 2008 at 10:43amUse the Z score formula:

Z = (X - ƒÊ)/SD

After finding the appropriate Z scores in a table in the back of your statistics text called something like "areas under the normal distribution," insert that Z value into the formula to find the value of your score.

Some problems need you to determine the Z score before consulting this table to get a proprotion.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
