Students were given an exam with 300 multiple-choice questions. The distribution of the scores was normal and mean was 195 with a standard deviation of 30.

What was the score of students who scored in the middle of the class? (50% did better, 50% did worse).

    wouldn't it be the mean?

    The mean is 195. Is that the middle score of the class? I'm very confused. The text that I have is not showing how to solve this problem. AHHH

  • math -

    The distribution is normal, thus symmetric about the mean, so the mean is also the median. You are looking for the median.

  • math -

    So is the answer 195?

    Thanks for the help! Awesome!
