**PsyDAG**, Monday, July 19, 2010 at 1:20pmA. Z = (score-mean)/SD (for distribution of scores)

B. Z = (mean1 - mean2)/standard error (SE) of difference between means (for distribution of means)

SEdiff = √(SEmean1^2 + SEmean2^2)

SEm = SD/√(n-1)

Since only one SD is provided, you can use just that to determine SEdiff.

Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportions related to these Z scores.
