  • Statistics -

    SEm = SD/√n

    Z = (score-mean)/SD or SEm, depending on whether you are talking about a distribution of individual scores or means respectively.

    Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportions related to the Z scores.
