PLEASE HELP! THIS IS AN EXAM REVIEW QUESTION!

- Statistics -
**Reiny**, Tuesday, April 6, 2010 at 11:10pmfor z-scores,

z = (x - m)/s

from my charts, a prob of .6915 corresponds to a z-score of .5

so .5 = (10 - m)/s

.5s = 10-m

m = 10 - .5s

and a prob of .8413 corresponds to a z-score of .9998 or 1

1 = (20-m)/s

s= 20-m

m = 20 - s

then 20 - s = 10 - .5s

s = -10/-.5 = 20

m = 0

If I recall variance is the square of the standard deviation.
