What were the values for the mean and standard deviation for the originai sample?

a.

To determine

To find: The values for the mean and standard deviation for the sample scores, before adding 3 points to each of the sample scores.

Explanation

Given info:

The data represents the mean and standard deviation for the sample of after adding 3 points to each of the sample score, .the sample has mean and sample standard deviation are 83 and 8.

Calculation:

New mean:

If n points subtracted to every score in sample, the value of mean is,

x¯=Mn
