**PsyDAG**, Tuesday, July 20, 2010 at 7:03pmA, B, C. Z = (score-mean)/SD

Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportion related to the Z scores you've found.

D, E. Reverse process from the same table. Use the % to find the Z score, then insert into the formula to find the score.

F. For Distribution of means, Z = (score-mean)/SEm (Standard Error of the mean)

SEm = SD/√(n-1)

Use same table.

You can enter the data either directly or as z-scores.
