So we have to find the Z value that yields a proportion of 99%=0.99. Using the Z table, this Z=2.33. Now going by the formula X=Zσ+µ X=2.33*20+100=146.6. One has to score at least 146.6 in the IQ test to be placed in the top 1% of all IQ test takers! QUIZ #4 MATH 1070 Spring 2008 March 19 th , 2008 3.
