The "standard score" is more commonly called the "z-score".

It is the number of "standard deviations" above the mean.

The standard deviation is the square root of the variance, or 5 in this case.

The number of data values is not needed to answer the question.

A data point of 20 is one standard deviation above the mean of 15, so the standard or "z" score is 1.0

A z-score is 0.6 standard deviations above the mean.
