# Area Under the Curve (ppt) ```Probability



The z score that corresponds to a data value
represents a Normal Percentile.
These percentiles can be found on the table
on pages A-29 and 30 in the back of your
book.
These percentiles represent the probability of
being at that z score or lower. Cumulative
area from the left.

the left of z=1.00
Determine the area under the normal curve
between z=-1.5 and z=1.0

The blood pressure of an 18 year old woman
is normally distributed with mean of 120 and
a standard deviation of 12. Draw and label
the Normal Model for this data.

What percent of 18 year old women have a
blood pressure between 96 and 144?

Greater than 120?

Less than 96?

The normal car speeds on an old town
highway have a mean of 77 and a standard
deviation of 9.1. What is the value of the 85th
percentile?
◦ Step 1: Look up the closest to .85 (%) on the ztable.
◦ Step 2: Find the corresponding z-score.
◦ Step 3: Set up an equation with the z-score, mean,
𝑥−𝜇
and standard deviation. 𝑧 =
𝜎
◦ Step 4: Solve for x.
