Question - On a statistics examination, the mean was 78 and the standard deviation was 10. (assume normal distribution).

a) Find the standard scores of two students whose grades were 93 and 62, respectively.

b) Determine the grades of two students whose standard scores were -0.6 and 1.2, respectively.

Informations given :

μ = 78

s = 10

***can you guys help me solving this simple questions seems I really weak in this chapter. Thanks.

2. Relevant equations

[tex]P (\frac{L-μ}{σ} < Z < \frac{U-μ}{σ})[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

So far, I've done half way (I don't know whether is it correct or wrong).

P (L < x < U)

[tex]P (\frac{L-μ}{σ} < Z < \frac{U-μ}{σ})[/tex]

[tex]P (\frac{62-78}{10} < Z < \frac{93-78}{10})[/tex]

P (-1.6 < Z < 1.5)

And then, need to draw normal distribution graph. ***I stuck here after find the interval Z values by reading normal distribution table***

Can someone check my answer or perhaps may help me for all the solutions.

Thanks.

***Sorry for my bad language***:uhh:
