    P(-1.34<Z<1.60) = P(Z<1.60) - P(Z>-1.34)

    P(Z<1.60) - ....

    How do I finish it off I understand that it is

    P(Z<1.60) - (1-P(Z<1.34))

    Could someone explain how to do the rearranging please.

    As in:

    P(Z<1.60) +P(Z<1.34) -1?

    Yes it is that, but I dont know how to proceed from this point:

    P(-1.34<Z<1.60) = P(Z<1.60) - P(Z>-1.34)

    I would like to understand that maths rearranging of it

    No worries I've always found diagrams a really nice way to represent certain concepts and given during my PhD I still use them

    Can you explain page 9. Q6.

    By the same principle I get 0.8185 which is wrong it should be 1-ans.

    Is it different to the other quesiton?

    This is different because both P(something < blah) has blah being positive. In your previous question on this thread, you had blah being negative. So basically just do what the solution bank did. Sketch the normal graph, sketch the bit for X-Y < 16, and then < 13. Then you'll see why you need to subtract the two if you want just the bit inbetween them.
