In a normal distribution with the mean being 500 and the standard deviation being 100, what raw score separates the top 40% of a distribution from the rest?

• statistics -

Find the z-score using a z-table that represents the top 40%. Then use z-score formula to find x.

z = (x - mean)/sd

mean = 500
sd = 100

I hope this will help get you started.
