# If P(Z greater than z) = 0.67, then z = -0.44. True False

## Question:

If P(Z > z) = 0.67, then z = -0.44.

True

False

## Standard Score:

Standard scores (usually written as *z* scores) are number of standard deviations random variables takes below or above the mean in a continuous distribution.

## Answer and Explanation:

It is **TRUE**.

If probability of getting a *Z* greater than *z* is greater than 0.5, the *z* must be negative. Using z table;

{eq}\begin{align*} P(Z>z)&=1-P(Z\le z)\\0.67&=1-P(z\le z)\\0.33&=P(Z\le z)\\z&=z_{0.33}\\z&=-0.44 \end{align*} {/eq}
