# How To Find Z*?

## What is the Z test formula?

The z score tells you how many standard deviations from the mean your score is.

This is exactly the same formula as z = x – μ / σ, except that x̄ (the sample mean) is used instead of μ (the population mean) and s (the sample standard deviation) is used instead of σ (the population standard deviation).

## What is the Z in statistics?

A z-test is a statistical test used to determine whether two population means are different when the variances are known and the sample size is large. A z-statistic, or z-score, is a number representing how many standard deviations above or below the mean population a score derived from a z-test is.

## How do you find the Z interval?

• Because you want a 95% confidence interval, your z*-value is 1.96.
• Suppose you take a random sample of 100 fingerlings and determine that the average length is 7.5 inches; assume the population standard deviation is 2.3 inches.
• Multiply 1.96 times 2.3 divided by the square root of 100 (which is 10).
