Z = (scoremean)/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. Change to percentile.

On a test whose distribution is approximately normal with a mean of 50 and a standard deviation of 10, the results for three students were reported as follows:
Student Opie has a Tscore of 60.
Student Paul has a zscore of 1.00.
Student Quincy has a zscore of +2.00.
Obtain the zscore and Tscore for EACH student. Who did better on the test? How many standard deviation units is each score from the mean? Compare the results of the three students.
