# What is the value of z if the area between -z and z is 0.754?

## Answer

###### Wiki User

###### 03/25/2010

Since the normal distribution is symmetric, the area between -z and 0 must be the same as the area between 0 and z. Using this fact, you can simplify this problem to finding a z such that the area between 0 and z is .754/2=.377. If you look this value up in a z-table or use the invNorm on a calculator, you will find that the required value of z will be 1.16. Therefore, the area between -1.16 and 1.16 must be approximately .754.

### What is the area between z equals 0 and z equals 2.24?

The question does not specify what z is but this answer will
assume that it is the value of a random variable with a Standard

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic, Statistics, Probability

### Why is only one normal distribution table needed to find any probability under the normal curve?

The normal distribution is symmetric about its mean; it increases
from an asymptote with the x-axis below the mean until the mean
whereupon it decreases until another asymptote with the x-axis the
same distance above the mean. (This is not a linear
increase/decrease, but a "bell" shape.)
As the distribution is symmetric about its mean, only tables up to
the mean need be calculated/given in a table. The area under the
curve between any two points can then be calculated.
For a normal...

### What is the z-score for the area equals 0.7704?

In a standard normal distribution curve, one half of the area is
.5 (or 50%). 0 is the middle value of the z-score. So, for an area
of .7704, z must be negative. Also, the area from 0 to z (which is
negative) must be equal to .2704. From the normal probability
table, this value is -0.74
Therefore, the z-score for the area equals 0.7704 is -0.74

### What z value corresponds to 17 percent of the data between the mean and the z value?

I believe your question is to find a range going from the mean
to a z-value on the standard normal distribution that corresponds
to 17% of the area. A normal distribution goes from values of minus
infinity to positive infinity. A standard normal distribution has a
mean of 0 and an standard deviation of 1. It is usually best if you
draw a diagram, in this case a bell shape curve with mean = 0. The
area to the left of...

### What proportion of a normal distribution is located between the two z scores -1.25 and 1.25?

Approx 78.88 %
Normal distribution tables give the area under the normal curve
between the mean where z = 0 and the given number of standard
deviations (z value) to its right; negative z values are to the
left of the mean.
Looking up z = 1.25 gives 0.3944 (using 4 figure tables).
→ area between -1.25 and 1.25 is 0.3944 + 0.3944 = 0.7888
→ the proportion of the normal distribution between z = -1.25
and z = 1.25 is (approx) 78.88...

### How do you find area under a curve between two z values?

Let z1 be the smaller z value and z2 be the larger value. Let
N(z) be the cumulative normal distribution evaluated at some value
z. The random variable is Z.
The probability that Z has a value from minus infinity to z2 is
equal to N(z2). You can show this by drawing a bell shape curve,
and shading in everything to the left of z2 as equal to the area
under curve.
Similarly, the probability that Z has a value from minus
infinity...

### What is the probability that a data value in a normal distribution is between a z-score of -0.28 and a z-score of 0.64?

Values in a normal table are usually given for z = 0 to 3 or
4.
Negative values are calculated by symmetry.
Between z = -0.28 and z = 0.64 it is the sum of the values for z
= 0.28 and z = 0.64 (using tables to 4 dp):
z = -0.28 → 0.1103
z = 0.64 → 0.2389
→ probability of a value of z between -0.28 and 0.64 is 0.1103 +
0.2389 = 0.3492
