A successful basketball player has a height of 6 feet 2 inches, or 188 cm. Based on statistics from a data set, his height converts to the z score of 1.95. How many standard deviations is his height above the mean?
Answer & Explanation
First, we have to define z-score:
z-score tells us that how many SDs a value is above or below mean.
If the z-score is positive then the value is above mean and if the z-score is negative then the value is below mean.
The given z-score of 188cm is 1.95 which means that this value is 1.95 standard deviations above mean
