Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Consider a population with u=70.2 and o=4.61. (A) Calculate the zscore for x=73.2 from a sample of size 10. (B) Could this zscore be used in calculating probabilities using Table 3 in Appendix B of the text? Why or why not?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I take it u=µ and o=σ? I can't help you with what Appendix B is in your book, but I can show you the zscore formula.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Stats is a messy place. It takes a strong combination of mathematical skill and good ol' common sense. Good luck!
