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* = 39

**b.*** X* = 43

**c.*** X* = 35

**d***. X* = 28

**a.**

To determine

**To find:** The new standardized score for

Explanation

**Given Info:**

The population has a mean of

The new distribution has a mean of

**Calculation:**

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

The formula of specified value of *X* is,

Substitute the value 39 for *X*, 38 for
