The mean is 60 and the standard deviation is 10.
If the entire distribution is transformed into z-scores, the mean of the transformed distribution is 0 and the standard deviation is 1.
Here, the population distribution is negatively skewed. Thus, the transformed distribution also negatively skewed. Therefore, the shape of the transformed distribution is negatively skewed.
