What do you mean by "P20 and P65"?

If I assume that those are percentiles, find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the Z scores corresponding to the proportions indicated. Insert the values into the following equation.

Z = (score-mean)/SD
