Z below the mean Mean = 12; SD = 4 What is the z score for a score of 9? Z 9 = (9-12)/4 = (-3/8) = -.75 9 is .75 sd below the mean

T above the mean T=[10(score-mean)/standard deviation] + 50 Mean = 12; SD = 4 What is the T score for 18? T 18 = [10 (18-12)/4 ] + 50 = [10 (1.5)] + 50 = 15 + 50 = 65 18 is 1.5 standard deviations above the mean
