    z = (X-Mean) / (SD/sqrt n) z1 = (60-61) / 5/sqrt 25 = - 1 z2 = (63-61) / (5/sqrt 25) = + 2 The area under the standard normal curve between these two z values indicates the required probability. Required probability = P(60 < Xbar < 63) = P(- 1 < z < 2) = 0.3413 (area corresponding to z1 being -ve lies on the left side of mean) + 0.4772 (area corresponding to z2 being +ve lies on the right side of mean) Is the answer 0.8185 ?
