One day it took Eric 21 minutes to get to work. You would use the formula for transforming a raw score in a sample into a z-score to determine how many standard deviations the raw score represents.

Since his "score" is 21, you would subtract the mean of 17 from 21 and divide that result (4) by the standard deviation of 3.

The z-score of 1.33 tells you that Eric’s time to get to work is 1.33 standard deviations from the mean. Another day, it took Eric only 12 minutes to get to work. Using the same formula, determine the z value. Is it positive or negative? Explain why it should be positive or negative
