Toolbox:
Standard normal distribution:
In a standard normal distribution $\mu=0,\sigma ^2=1$
The random variable $X$ can be converted to the standard normal variable $Z$ by the transformation
$Z=\large\frac{X-\mu}{\sigma}$
The probability density function $Z$ is $\phi(z)=\large\frac{1}{\sqrt{2\pi}}$$e^{-\Large\frac{1}{2}z^2};-\infty < Z < \infty$
$Z\sim N(0,1)$
Step 1:
$X\sim N(80,10^2)$
Let $Z=\large\frac{X-\mu}{\sigma}$
$\qquad=\large\frac{X-80}{10}$ be the standard normal variate.
Step 2:
$P(X\leq 100)$ When $X=100,Z=\large\frac{100-80}{10}$$=2$
$\therefore P(X\leq 100)=P(Z\leq 2)=0.5$+area beneath the curve between $Z=0$ and $Z=2$

Suppose that the amount of cosmic radiation to which a person is exposed when flying by jet across the united states is a random variable having a normal distribution with a mean of $4.35 m$ rem and standard deviation of $0.59m$ rem. What is the probability that a person will be exposed to than $5.20m$ rem of cosmic radiation of such flight.
