Well I think 40 is 50% correct, yes? Based on passage rates of around 50%, and assuming a normal distribution of scores, the cutoff should be about half. But then again, we do not know the underlying distribution, maybe it is highly skewed to the right? Who knows

I remember I did the same. Just equal to zero and solved, but I got 0.3X which was one of the answers.

Are you assuming 50% or have at least some reason?

This differs from your assumption of top 2500-2800, which is based on speculation and no historical data

All are based on estimation and assessment by test takers on their own performance, there just have been numerous discussions that point to some ranges that many happen to agree.

50% is roughly the historical pass rate. It doesn't have to be that, could be higher or lower. What I'm trying to say is, if you want to go with a historical simulation method, then 50% is your starting point which is what I assumed the other fellow did.
