  1. You are evidently studying bivariate distributions, and I am not an expert on that subject. Convert the 90th percentile to the number of standerd deviations from the mean score. I get 1.28 sigma. With a correlation of r=0.57, the number 1-r^2 = 0.675 probably plays a role in the number of standard deviations from the mean Math score. That would be 0.864 sigma, or the 80th percentile.
