# Calculation of Kyleâ€™s Blood Pressure Using Z-Score

Question

Kyle’s doctor told him that the z-score for his systolic blood pressure is 1.75. Which of the following is the best interpretation of this standardized score? The systolic blood pressure (given in millimeters) of males has an approximately normal distribution with mean µ = 125 and standard deviation σ = 14. If X = a systolic blood pressure score then X ~ N (125, 14).
a.

i. Kyle’s systolic blood pressure is 175.

ii. Kyle’s systolic blood pressure is 1.75 times the average blood pressure of men his age.

iii. Kyle’s systolic blood pressure is 1.75 above the average systolic blood pressure of men his age. iv. Kyles’s systolic blood pressure is 1.75 standard deviations above the average systolic blood pressure for men.

1. Calculate Kyle’s blood pressure.

Summary: This question belongs to probability in mathematics and discusses about normal distribution to find the best interpretation of a standardized score.

Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
