Obtain the value of the random variable X if the Z-score equals 0.75.
The value of the random variable X if the Z-score equals 0.75 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,
$$\displaystyle{z}={\frac{{{X}-\mu}}{{\sigma}}}$$
$$\displaystyle{0.75}={\frac{{{X}-{100}}}{{{20}}}}$$
$$\displaystyle{X}-{100}={0.75}\times{20}={15}$$
$$\displaystyle{X}={100}+{15}={115}$$
The value of the random variable X if the Z-score equals 0.75 is 115.

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.
