# 6. A researcher develops a test for identifying intellectually gifted children. It has au= 56 and o=8.d.What percentage of children are expected to score above 60?What percentage of the scores will be below 54?b.You measure 64 children and get a sample mean of 58.28? How likely is this sample toC.relate to the originally described population using a two tail analysis with a 0.05. Wouldyour conclusion change if we did a one tail analysis with a-0.01?

Step 1

Area under the normal curve is the sum of all probabilities of variable X. Since probability ranges from 0 to 1, the total area under the cuve is equal to 1. We can calculate the probability of finding a score/number less than X ie P(x<X)  by calculating Z score and the finding corresponding probability of that Z score using Z table.

But if we need to find probability of a score greater than X ie P(x>X) then we first calculated P(x<X) and subtract that from 1.

Step 2

Part a)

Z score computation:

Step 3

Probability corresponding to Z score of 0.5 can be read from z table as shown below.

P(X<60)=P(Z<0.5) = ...
