- 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 z-score of -2.6?

Please show all work.

**MathGuru**, Saturday, September 29, 2012 at 9:41amIf 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.
