Standard score of -0.25.

A data value of 89 is approximately in the 40th percentile.

Step-by-step explanation:

Problems of normally distributed samples can be solved using the z-score formula.

In a set with mean and standard deviation , the zscore of a measure X is given by: The Z-score measures how many standard deviations the measure is from the mean. After finding the Z-score, we look at the z-score table and find the p-value associated with this z-score. This p-value is the probability that the value of the measure is smaller than X, that is, the percentile of X. Subtracting 1 by the pvalue, we get the probability that the value of the measure is greater than X.

In this problem, we have that: Give the standard score and approximate percentile for a data value of 89.

Z when X = 89    has a pvalue of 0.4013.

So a data value of 89 is approximately in the 40th percentile.
