3. 90% = mean ± 1.645 SEm

5. Z = (score-mean)/SEm

Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportion/probability related to the Z scores. The values for the SEm (1.96, !.645) on previous problems were also obtained from this table.
