μ = -10 and σ = 20, 1. What value is exactly 75 percent of the data lower then? .75 x: -10 ? z: 0 ? Calculate the just the area above the mean: .75 - .5 = .25 For an area of .25 in column B, lookup corresponding z score in column A: ~.67 Convert z-score to data value, x = (z)( σ ) + μ = (.67)(20) -10 = 3.4 2. What is the percentile of the value 0? Convert to z-value: z = (x-μ)/ σ = (0+10)/20 = .5 ? x: -10 XX z: 0 ZZ Either: For z = .5 in column A, lookup the corresponding area from column C: .3085 1 - .3085 = .6915 (.6915)100=.6915 The 69th percentile. Or:
