Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Can you have the same z score in the same set of data? I'm thinking yes because what if you have the same number more than once but not sure

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you know the mean and standard deviation, then you can plug them into \[z = (x  \mu)/\sigma,\] wnere mu is the mean and sigma is the standard deviation. Then the probability distribution in x becomes the standard normal distribution in z.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If the number of data points is at least thiryt, then the normal approximation to distribution due to the data will be a good approximation.
