    but to do a) select standard distribution (the first one shown) right tail type in -0.966 for z and have it calculate the area under the curve to the right of that z score. that is the chance the weight is above this z score

    any way this can be done on a graphing calc rather than on this site?

    if it knows about normal distributions (do they?) otherwise http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Normal_distribution#Numerical_approximations_for_the_normal_CDF is a (messy) way

    using normal since ur z score is -0.966 round to 2 decimal u'll have -0.97 it means u'll have P(z>=-0.97) because it is over 1050 u'll have 1-P(Z<=-0.97) on the z table -0.97 it hase the probability of 0.1660 now 1-(0.1660) 0.834 wich by conclusion is 83.4%

    to find this 0.1660 take -0.9 ignore negative (meaning u gonna take 0.9)then add it to 0.07 wich will give positive 0.97 from there where -0.9 intersects 0.07 is ypur probability
