Textbook Problem

A sample has a mean of *M* = 30 and a standard deviation of *s* = 8.

- a. Would a score of
*X =*36 be considered a central score or an extreme soon the sample? - b. If the standard deviation were
*s*= 2, would*X*= 36 be central or extreme

**(a)**

To determine

**To Find:** Would a score of
*.*

Explanation

**Given info:**

The sample has the mean of

The *X* score is, 36.

**Calculation:**

The *z*-score 0 indicates that the score is close to population mean and it is known as central score. The *z*-score beyond –2.00 and +2.00 indicates that the score is extreme score.

The z-score for

The formula for calculating the *z*-score is,

Substitute

**(b)**

To determine

**To check:** Whether the score of
