Answers for exercises on Z scores 1. a) From normal curve table, top 5% (45% between mean and Z score) begins at 1.64 (or you can use 1.65). Thus, the corresponding raw score is X = (Z) (SD) + M = (1.64) (2.8) + 15.3 = 19.89. b) From normal curve table, bottom 10% (40% between mean and Z score) begins at 1.28. Thus the corresponding raw score is (-1.28) (2.8) + 15.3 = 11.72. 2. a) Z = 740 500 / 100 = 2.4. From the normal curve table, 1% scored higher, b) 99% scored lower. c) Z = 380 500 / 100 = -1.2. From the normal curve table, 88.49% scored higher, and d) 11.51% scored lower.

Of this 90%, 50 % are below the mean. Thus, the top 10% is the point where 40% of scores are between it and the mean. Looking this up in the normal curve table, 40.00 (the closest actual value is 39.97) is a Z score of 1.28. b) 2.33...
