. In terms of the mean and standard deviation:
 What does it mean to say that a particular value of x has a standard score of +1.5?
 What does it mean to say that a particular value of x has a zscore of 2.6?
Please show all work.

If a value of x has a standard score of 1.5, this means that x is 1.5 standard deviations above the mean.
The mean divides a distribution in half. Half the values are above the mean and half are below the mean.
I'll let you try the second question on your own.
I hope this helps.

I really don't understand statistics and am not sure if I am trying to make it harder than it needs to be, but I am lost!
