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