    Solution for question 6

    to figure out the z score use this formula:


    <br />
z = \frac{score - average}{standard deviation}<br />

    mean = 50 sd = 10 and z = 1

    <br />
1 = \frac{x - 50}{10}<br />

    10 = x - 50

    x = 60

    z score is the result of transforming a RV X\sim N(\mu,\sigma^2) by letting:

    z=\frac{x-\mu}{\sigma}.

    Then Z\sim N(0,1).

    In rough terms it is the transform that is applied to allow the use of tables
    of the standard normal distribution to be used to obtain probabilities for
    random variables which have a normal distribution which is not standard.
