  1. Z = (score-mean)/SEm

    SEm = SD/√n

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

  2. (7.73/SQRT (24) = 1.577879643, next we subtract the data value (70) from the mean (73) as follows (70 – 73 = -3); the values of the two equations are divided as follows (-3/1.577879643 = 1.901285699).
