Answer:

I think the problem is really about a proportion so you do not need the standard deviation to find the standardized test statistic z. See the Explanation for the formula.

Explanation:

In your question, the sample proportion (p-hat) is 0.11%. The population proportion, p, is 0.05%. Use the following procedure:

By definition, Z score is:
#z=(x-mu)/sigma#
where #x# is your datum, #mu# is the mean of your population and #sigma# is its standard deviation. Basically, it's a measure of deviation from the mean in units of standard deviation.

Unless I misunderstood your problem, I see no way you can calculate this number without knowing a standard deviation.
