Unformatted text preview: #5) ACT scores are distributed normally with a mean = 27 and a standard deviation = 4.0. How high must a student score in order to place in the top 30% of students taking the ACT test (according to Table A)? Use a zscore that is actually listed in Table A. Round your answer to two decimal places. #6) The mean of x = 8 and the standard deviation of x = 3. The variable x is linearly transformed such that x new = 5x. What is the mean of x new ? What is the standard deviation of x new ? #7) The mean of x = 6 and the standard deviation of x = 2. The variable x is linearly transformed such that x new = 3x. What is the mean of x new ? What is the variance of x new ? #8) The mean of x = 5 and the standard deviation of x = 2. The variable x is linearly transformed such that x new = a + bx. The mean of x new = 27 and standard deviation of x new = 8. Suppose b is a positive number. What does a equal? What does b equal?...
