I’m working on a Statistics question and need guidance to help me study.

This is a graded discussion: 10 points possible

due Mar 1

Since this is a group discussion, each group has its own conversation for this topic. Here are the ones you have access to:

# Module 10 – Introduction to Normal Probability Distributions (18 of 19 discussion 1)

## Learn by Doing

Here are the directions, grading rubric, and definition of high-quality feedback for the Learn by Doing discussion board exercises.

### Prompt

According to the College Board website, the scores on the math part of the SAT (SAT-M) in a recent year had a mean of 507 and standard deviation of 111. Assume that SAT-M scores have a normal probability distribution. One of the criteria for admission to a certain engineering school is an SAT-M score in the 98th percentile. This means the score is in the top 2% of scores.

Find the actual SAT-M score marking the 98th percentile? Show your work. Interpret your result.

Note: You will need the Inverse Normal Distribution Calculator below.
