## Z Table

Standard is represented by Z variable. Random variable that is normal and has a mean of 0 and standard deviation of 1

The area under the curve, which totals 1, is shown in the Z table. According to six sigma ideas, the Z tables are really computed over a range of +/- 3.4 values.

### Shows the percent of population:

• Less than or equal to Z (option "Up to Z")
• Greater than Z (option "Z onward") is calculated as 1 - (less than or equal to Z) ### Example 1:Learn how to calculate a Continuous Random Variable's probability using the Z table.

Assume that a continuous random variable representing students' test results has a normal distribution with the values = 711 and = 29.

What is the likelihood that pupils will receive a score of x > 680?

Ans: Standard normal variable, z value calculated for corresponding continuous random variable x (680)

Step 1: Calculate z score corresponding to 680

formula: z = (x - µ) / σ

z = (680-711)/29

z = -1.06 Step 2: Refer to z table:

Utilise the z table to calculate the probability.

Start reading the second decimal number along column 06 at the row where z = -1.0.

The value is 0.1446 in the z table with a z value of -1.06.

This suggests that the area under the curve from -1.06 of z value (towards the left tail) is around 14.46%.

This may be viewed as having a probability of 14.46% for the population of students with scores between 0 and 680 for the supplied normal distributed data. Example 2: Assume a continuous random variable students examination scores following a normal distribution, with µ = 711, σ = 29

Find out the probability of students securing a score of x > 725?

Ans: Standard normal variable, z value calculated for corresponding continuous random variable x (725)

Step 1: Calculate z score corresponding to 725

formula: z = (x - µ) / σ

z = (725 - 711)/29

z = 0.48 Step 2:

Utilise the z table to calculate the probability.

Start reading along column 08. The second decimal value is found starting at the row with z = 0.4.

The value is 0.6844 in the z table when the z value is 0.48.

This suggests that the area under the curve from z=0.48 towards the left tail is around 68.44%.

This may be translated as having a chance of 68.44% for the population of students whose scores lie between 0 and 725.

The area under the curve (probability), from a particular quartile value (z value), towards the left tail of the curve, is represented by the table, commonly known as the Standard Normal Table.
