# Normal distribution question? URGENT!! Watch

1. X-N (45, SIGMA)
P(W<54)=0.75
SO 54-45/SIGMA = 0.67
I don't understand where the 0.67 has come from, it's not in any of the tables what happened to the 0.75, why is it 0.67
This came up in a paper before but I didn't understand it :'(
This question was from June 2007 Edexcel S1 Q2e
Thanks
2. BUMP
3. Sorry for the bumping but this is really urgent
