 The mean and standard deviation of a normally distributed dataset are 19 and 4, respectively. 19 is subtracted from every term in the dataset and then the result is divided by 4. Which of the following best describes the resulting distribution?
 It has a mean of 0 and a standard deviation of 1.
 It has a mean of 0, a standard deviation of 4, and its shape is normal.
 It has a mean of 1 and a standard deviation of 0.
 It has a mean of 0, a standard deviation of 1, and its shape is normal.
 It has a mean of 0, a standard deviation of 4, and its shape is unknown.
 The fivenumber summary for a onevariable dataset is {5, 18, 20, 40, 75}. If you wanted to construct a modified boxplot for the dataset (that is, one that would show outliers if there are any), what would be the maximum possible length of the right side "whisker"?

 Freeresponse questions on the AP Statistics Exam are graded on 4, 3, 2, 1, or 0 basis. Question #2 on the exam was of moderate difficulty. The average score on question #2 was 2.05 with a standard deviation of 1. To the nearest tenth, what score was achieved by a student who was at the 90th percentile of all students on the test? You may assume that the scores on the question were approximately normally distributed.
