Answer: the z score is – 1.5

Step-by-step explanation:

Since the time required to finish a test is normally distributed, we would apply the formula for normal distribution which is expressed as

z = (x – µ)/σ

Where

x = time required to finish the test

µ = mean time

σ = standard deviation

From the information given,

µ = 60 minutes

σ = 10 minutes

We want to find the z-score for a student who finishes the test in 45 minutes

For x = 45,

z = (45 – 60)/10 = – 15/10 = – 1.5
