Stanford-Binet IQ scores are known to follow a normal distribution with mean 100 and standard
deviation 16. Recall Z = (X µ)/) and X=µ + Z).
1. (2 points) What is the probability that a randomly selected individual has an IQ score above
128?
P(X > 128) = P(Z > (128100)/16) = P(Z > 1.75) = 1 0.9599 = 0.0401
That is, only 4.01% of the population has an IQ above 128.
2. (2 points) Mensa is an organization that only allows people to join if their IQs are in the top
2% of the population. What is the lowest Stanford-Binet IQ you could have and still be
eligible to join Mensa?
Z for 98th percentile is 2.05
So X = µ + Z) = 100 + 2.05(16) = 132.8
That is, only 2% of the population has an IQ above 132.8.
3. (1 point) The normal probability rule tells that 95% of the population have IQ scores
between what two numbers?
The normal probability rule tells us that 95% of the people have IQ scores between
µ2) and µ+2), or between 1002(16) and 100+2(16), i.e. between 68 and 132.
