2. between a raw score of 45 and 50? (3 points)

1. Find the z-score corresponding to a raw score of 90 from a normal distribution with mean 60 and standard deviation 8. (2 points)

• Between the scores of 30 and 65? (2 points)

5. Assume that the distribution of a college entrance exam is normal with a mean of 500 and a standard deviation of 100. For each score below, find the equivalent Z score, the percentage of the area above the score, and the percentage of the area below the score. (3 + 3 points)
