Textbook Problem

For a population with a mean of μ = 80 and a standard deviation of σ = 12, find the z-score corresponding to each of the following samples. a. M = 83 for a sample of n = 4 scores b. M = 83 for a sample of n = 16 scores c. M = 83 for a sample of n = 36 scores

a.

To determine

The z-score for given sample.

Explanation

Given info:

The numbers of scores in each sample are n=4, the population mean is μ=80, the population standard deviation is σ=12 and the sample mean is M=83.

Calculation:

If μ and σ represents the population mean and standard deviation respectively. Let n represents numbers of scores in each sample. Let X represents sample mean. Then,

μ=80σ=12n=4M=83

The z-score corresponding to the sample mean is given by:

z</

b.

To determine

The z-score for given sample.

c.

To determine

The z-score for given sample.
