# Statistics Normal Distribution Question

Watch
#1

Hi, I was just doing this question and Itβs not that bad, but I donβt understand the 2 lines Iβve marked. I know how to do the Maths, but I donβt understand why, after youβve worked out what Z is (0.9479), you then switch that for 1.625. I left it as 0.9479 while doing everything else so the end answer I got was slightly off - 646. Anyone know why you switch out that number ?

You have to use the phi table conversions. 0.9479 is a probability. You need to convert this to a phi number to do the maths. Look for an example in your textbook and you should see they convert it to a phi number in every case.

Ah yeah I get that, but In this instance, we donβt know the mean or standard deviation, all we know is that they are in some form of P, so how would I go about doing that ?
