Textbook Problem

A distribution with a mean of μ = 76 and a standard deviation of σ = 12 is transformed into a standardized distribution with μ = 100 and σ = 20. Find the new, standardized score for each of the following values from the original population.

**a**. *X* = 61

**b.** *X* = 70

**c.*** X* = 85

**d.** *X* = 94

**(a)**
