**PsyDAG**, Monday, November 15, 2010 at 10:13ama. 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 that Z score.

b. This is a distribution of means rather than raw scores.

Z = (Sample mean- population mean)/SEm

SEm (standard error of the mean) = SD/√(n-1)

Use same table.

c. Might volleyball players be a biased sample?
