Homework Help: statistics

Posted by Beverly on Tuesday, March 22, 2011 at 1:46am.

Eric has computed that it takes an average (mean) of 17 minutes with a standard deviation of 3 minutes to drive from home, park the car, and walk to his job. One day it took Eric 21 minutes to get to work. You would use the formula for transforming a raw score in a sample into a z-score to determine how many standard deviations the raw score represents. Since his "score" is 21, you would subtract the mean of 17 from 21 and divide that result (4) by the standard deviation of 3. The z-score of 1.33 tells you that Ericís time to get to work is 1.33 standard deviations from the mean.
