  • 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:
$P(X\leq 80)$
When $X=80$
$\therefore P(X\leq 80)=P(Z\leq 0)$
