The sample size is 5. It is appropriate to find t score.
z score shall be calculated only when the sample size is 30
Some statisticians, if they believe the population distribution is normal, use z score even if the sample size is less than 30.
You didn't state explicitly for which distribution you want to compute z. It may be an observed distribution or it may be a sampling distribution.
Since you have asked the question, I shall answer by assuming it is a sampling distribution.
S E = S D n = 3 4 = 3 2 = 1.5
z = x - μ S E = 60 - 60 1.5 = 0 1.5 = 0
Note: If the Value of X is equal to Mean i.e., μ the z score is always 0.

A distribution has a standard deviation of o=10. Find the z-score for each of the following locations in the distribution.
a) Above the mean by 5 points b) Above the mean by 2 points c) Below the mean by 20 points d) Below the mean by 15 points
Please don't give me the answer, but explain how I would work this out.

You toss a coin 163 times and get 50 heads. Test the hypothesis that it is a fair coin, using a two-tailed test and 5% level of significance.
The answer wants each of the following: test statistic, critical value, and accept or reject the hypothesis.
It is quite obvious to me that we will reject the null hypothesis since the 2 z-scores associated with getting less than 50 tails (50.5 using continuity correction) are -4.86 and 4.86, while at a 5% confidence interval, the two z-scores are -1.96 and 1.96, but I am not sure what he wants for the test statistic or critical value, or what those are exactly.

I have two cases:
1. If I add a constant to them, does the mean, standard deviation and z score change?
What I think: Mean changes, std deviation doesn't change and z score doesn't change.
2. If I blackuce all the numbers by 5% does the mean, standard deviation and z score change?
What I think: Mean changes by 5%, standard deviation changes but the percentage difference remains the same, and the z score changes by 2.5%
Am I thinking correctly?
