  2. 5.

    115 - 100 = 15

    z score means how many standard deviations away from mean
    so
    15/10 = 1.5
    A+ :)

  3. To do the calculations yourself for 3 and 4:

    Range = highest score - lowest

    Find the mean first = sum of scores/number of scores

    Subtract each of the scores from the mean and square each difference. Find the sum of these squares. Divide that by the number of scores to get variance.

    Standard deviation = square root of variance

    For 5, this is the equation used:

    Z = (score-mean)/SD
