Textbook Problem

A distribution with a mean of μ = 38 and a standard deviation of σ = 5 is transformed into a standardized distribution with μ = 50 and σ = 10. Find the new, standardized score for each of the following values from the original population.a.    X = 39b.    X = 43c.    X = 35d.    X = 28

a.

To determine

To find: The new standardized score for X=39 from the original population.

Explanation

Given Info:

The population has a mean of μ=38 and a standard deviation σ=5, score of X=39.

The new distribution has a mean of μ=50 and a standard deviation σ=10.

Calculation:

Use the formula of z score to transform the original raw scores into z-scores as follows:

z=Xμσ

The formula of specified value of X is,

X=μ+zσ

Substitute the value 39 for X, 38 for μ and 5 for σ

b.

To determine

To find: The new standardized score for X=43 from the original population.

c.

To determine

To find: The new standardized score for X=35 from the original population.

d.

To determine

To find: The new standardized score for X=28 from the original population.
