  1. standard score = z

    z = (x-mean of whole population)/sigma of whole population
    In other words z measures how many standard deviations your data point x is away from the mean of the population.

    z = 1.5 means your data point x is 1.5 standard deviations bigger than the average of the population

    z = -2.1 means your data point is 2.1 standard deviations below the mean.
