TASK 1—NORMAL DISTRIBUTION Scores on a statewide standardized test are normally distributed with a mean of 12.89 and a standard deviation of 1.95. Certificates are given to students whose scores are in the top 2% of those who took the test. This means that they scored better than 98% of the other test takers. Marcus received his score of 13.7 on the exam and is wondering why he didn’t receive a certificate. Show all work to determine whether Marcus’ score was high enough to earn a certificate. Write a letter to Marcus explaining whether or not he will be receiving a certificate. Include a brief summary of your statistical analysis in your letter. - Marcus score is 13.7, the mean is 12.89, and the standard deviation is 1.95, so I’ll do ( 13.7 – 12.89)/ 1.95, Since Marcus' z-score is 0.415. The area to the left of the z-score is 65.9% so therefore Marcus did scored better than 65.9% of the students. So Marcus needs to score 98% better of all the other students in order for him to receive an actual certificate.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
