    the book (well the answers in the back) rewrite it as P(-1<Z<1), but i dont know why??? :/

    the reason why is because when you square a number it goes postive; and all the values of z that can be squared and be less than 1 are those values that are less than 1 to begin with.

    (-.5)^2 = .25 (-.9999)^2 = well something between 0 and 1 :)

    is 2^2 less than 1?

    can we reason on it by appllying some properties of inequalitys o Z^2<1 ??

    z^2 < 1 sqrt each side z < sqrt(1) or z > -sqrt(1)

    P(z^(2)<1) = P(-1< Z < 1) = \[\Phi (1) - \Phi(-1)\]

    Also, Z^2 is is a chi squared distribution with 1 degree of freedom. So you can find the F(1) using the cumulative distribution function of the chi squared distribution

    or, another idea: \[|z|=\sqrt{z^2}\] \[z^2<1\] \[\sqrt{z^2}<\sqrt{1}\] \[|z|<1\]

    \[|z|<1~implies~-1<z<1\]
