**PsyDAG**, Wednesday, March 27, 2013 at 1:38pmA, B. Z = (score-mean)/SD

Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportion/probability (B use.72) related to the Z score.

Last two problems relate to distribution of means rather than a distribution of raw scores.

C, D. Z = (score-mean)/SEm

SEm = SD/√n

Use same table.
