Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0N(0,1) means that z follows the normal distribution, with parameters standard deviation 1 and mean 0. The table of normal distribution is available at many sources, such as your calculator, or the following link: http://www.math.unb.ca/~knight/utility/NormTble.htm Since the area under a probability distribution equals 1.0 and the distribution is symmetrical about the mean, only half of the table (betwen z=0 to infinity) needs to be tabulated. To look for the probability of a negative zvalue, you can look up the positive value and subtract from 1.0. Example P(0.5)=1P(0.5)=10.6915=0.3085
