Andrew got 68 for both English and Maths. The mean for english was 52 and the mean for Maths was 55. The standard deviations were 10 and 8 respectively. Determine the subject in which andrew did better
English: mean 52, std deviation 10
Math: mean 55, std deviation 8
his score: 68
He was English mean + 1.6 std dev
Math mean + 1.63 std deviation
looks like he did better on a normalized basis on Math. However, it was not so much to brag about.
