Given a population with μ = 30 and σ = 5, 1. What proportion of the data are higher than 32.5? Convert to z-value: z = (x-μ)/ σ = (32.5-30)/5 = .5 ? x: 30 32.5 z: 0 .5 Either: For z = .5 in column A, lookup the corresponding area from column C: .3085 Or: For z = .5 in column A, lookup the corresponding area from column B: .1915 .5 - .1915 = .3085 2. At what value is the 25th percentile? .25 x: ? 30 z: ? 0 For an area of .25in column C, lookup corresponding z score in column A: ~.67 Take negative, -.67 Convert z-score to data value, x = (z)( σ ) + μ = (-.67)(5) + 30 = 26.65
