  1. A. Use same process as previous post.

    B. Now we are talking about a distribution of means rather than raw scores.

    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.
