In a population of exam scores, a score of X = 48 corresponds to z = +1.00 and a score of X = 36 corresponds to z = 0.50. Find the mean and standard deviation of the population.

The difference between the 48 and the 36 is 1.5 standard deviations. Thus
1.5 sigma = 12,
and sigma (the standard deviation) = 8
48 is one sigma above the mean, so the mean is 40.
