Obtain the value of the random variable X if the Z-score equals 1.80.
The value of the random variable X if the Z-score equals 1.80 is obtained below as follows:
Let X denotes the random variable with the population mean of 100 and standard deviation of 20.
That is, \(\displaystyle\mu={100}\), \(\displaystyle\sigma={20}\).
The required value of X is,
\(\displaystyle{z}={\frac{{{X}-\mu}}{{\sigma}}}\)
\(\displaystyle{1.80}={\frac{{{X}-{100}}}{{{20}}}}\)
\(\displaystyle{X}-{100}={1.80}\times{20}={36}\)
\(\displaystyle{X}={100}+{36}={136}\)
The value of the random variable X if the Z-score equals 1.80 is 136.

Random variables \(X_{1},X_{2},...,X_{n}\) are independent and identically distributed. 0 is a parameter of their distribution.
If \(X_{1}, X_{2},...,X_{n}\) are Normally distributed with unknown mean 0 and standard deviation 1, then \(\overline{X} \sim N(\frac{0,1}{n})\). Use this result to obtain a pivotal function of X and 0.
