Is that the lowest 30th percentile? Or is it the lowest 30 percent of the total score?

Z = (score-mean)/SD

Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportion (.30) and its Z score. (Pay attention to the sign.) Insert Z and other values in equation above to find the cutoff score.

Please advise-Thank you.

The Center for Urban Transportation research released a report stating that the average commuting distance in the United States is 10.9 miles Suppose that this average is actually the mean of a sample of 300 commuters and that the sample deviation was 6.2 mi. Estimate the true mean commuting distance using a 99% confidence interval.
