Question:
(TCO 6) If John gets an 80 on a physics test where the mean is 85 and the
standard deviation is 3, where does he stand in relation to his classmates?
Your Answer:
He is in the
top 5%.
He is in the
top 10%.
He is in the
bottom 5%.
( Ch 5: z = (80 – 85)/3 = 1.67. Area to
the left is 0.0475. Thus, 4.75% of test
scores are below 80. )
