A cutoff score of 79 has been established for a sample of scores in which the mean is 65. If the corresponding z-score is 1.4 and the scores are normally distributed, what is the standard deviation?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com June 3, 2020, 4:57 pm ad1c9bdddf
Solution. Assume that the standard deviation is x, by the hypothesis, we know that
|79-65|/x=1.4, so x=10
The solution answers the question(s) below.
