    a. By distribution, do you mean the Standard Error of the mean (SEm)?

    SEm = SD/√(n-1)

    b. Z = (score-mean)/SD

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

    c, d. Use same equation above, except substitute SEm for SD.
