**PsyDAG**, Friday, May 3, 2013 at 1:55pmWe do not do your homework for you. Although it might take more effort to do the work on your own, you will profit more from your effort. We will be happy to evaluate your work though.

Again, I will start you out. We use SEm instead of SD, because we are dealing with distributions of means rather than raw scores.

1. 99% = mean ± 2.575 SEm

SEm = SD/√n

The table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportion/probability (.005) to get Z score

(score in standard deviations from the mean).
