# How do I find the z-score of numbers that go above what's in the table?

So we can calculate the z-score just by knowing 3 things. We have to know the specific value (data value (x)), $\mu$ which is the mean of your sample, and the standard deviation of your sample $\sigma$. Thereby can we use the equation:
$z = \frac{x - \mu}{\sigma}$
