Round your answer to two decimal places.
To find the 99% of the women’s physical functioning scores you would use the formula:. This formula was found on page 132 of Exercise 18 in the second paragraph. The Mean=57.09 and the SD=23.72. These scores were found on pg. 134 in table 2 column labeled Female in the Physical Functioning category.

Formula: 65.20±2.58(29.79)
65.20-2.58(29.79) = 65.20-76.86
65.20-76.86= -11.66
65.20+2.58(29.79) = 65.20+76.86
65.20+76.86= 142.06
ANSWER= (-11.66,142.06)

8. Assuming that the distribution of scores is normal, 99% of HIV-positive body image scores around the mean were between what two values? Round your answer to two decimal places. To find the 99% of HIV-positive body image scores you would use the formula:. This formula was found on page 132 of Exercise 18 in the second paragraph. The Mean=68.0 and the SD=17.0. These scores were found on pg. 133 in the second paragraph.

68.00-2.58(17.00) = 68.00-43.86
68.00-43.86= 24.14
68.00+2.58(17.00) = 68.00+43.86
68.00+43.86= 111.86
ANSWER= (24.14,111.86)
