Textbook Problem

**A** population of scores has μ = 73 and σ = 8**.** If the distribution is standardized to create a new distribution with μ = 100 and σ = 20, what are the new values for each of the following scores from the original distribution?

**a.** *X* = 65 **b.** *X* = 71 **c.** *X* = 81 **d.** *X* = 83

**(a)**

To determine

**To find:** The new values for

Explanation

**Given Info:**

The population has a mean of

The new distribution has a mean of

**Calculation:**

The *z*-score is used to transform any distribution in to a standardized distribution with a predetermined mean and a predetermined standard deviation. The advantage of the *X* scores transformed to *z*-score tells that the entire population of scores is transformed into *z*-scores

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 65 for *X*, 73 for
