**Shifting and Scaling SAT/ACT Max SAT: 1600 (old school) Max ACT: 36**

SAT = 40 x ACT + 150 ACT Summary Stats: Lowest = 19 Mean = 27 SD = 3 Q3 = 30 Median = 28 IQR = 6 Find equivalent SAT scores

NormalCDF The NormalCDF( function finds the percent of the total area of the distribution that falls between two z-scores. For example, what would the NormalCDF(-1,1) be? (Hint: rule)

5
**NormalCDF Procedure First, determine the type of question being asked**

Once you’ve determined it is appropriate to use the NormalCDF function, convert given values into z-scores 𝑧= 𝑦− 𝑦 𝑆𝐷

6
**NormalCDF Questions: Answers:**

What percent of the distribution falls between X and Y? What percent of the distribution is greater than Y? What percent of the distribution is less than X? Answers: NormalCDF(X,Y) NormalCDF(Y,99) NormalCDF(-99,X)

7
**invNormal( Going the Other Way**

The invNormal( function finds what z-score would cut off that percent of the data Example: What z-score cuts off the top 10% in a Normal model? The bottom 20%? The trick here is figuring out what percent (as a decimal) to enter in to the function. Imagine invNormal calculates the area starting at -99. So to find the z-score that cuts off the top 10% we want the z-score that includes 90% invNormal (.9) = 1.28

8
invNormal( Example Based on the model N(1152, 84) describing angus steer weights, what are the cut-off values for A) highest 10% B) lowest 20% C) middle 40% A) invNormal(.9) = 1.28 B) invNormal(.2) = -.842 C) invNormal(.3) = -.524 invNormal(.7) = .524 1,259lbs 1,081lbs 1,108 – 1196lbs

**New Topic – Normal Probability Plots**

How to decide when the normal model (unimodal and symmetric) is appropriate: Draw a picture (Histogram) Draw a picture! (Normal Probability Plot) A Normal Probability Plot is a plot of Normal Scores (z-scores) on the x-axis vs the units you were measuring on the y-axis (weights, miles per gallon, etc.) A unimodal and symmetric distribution will create a straight line

What it Looks Like

12
How It Works A Normal probability plot takes each data value and plots it against the z-score you would expect that point to have if the distribution were perfectly normal These are best done on a calculator or with some other piece of technology because it can be tricky to find what values to “expect”
