You usually need an error function table or computer tool to do this kind of problem. I am a bit surprised they teach this in algebra 2.

The answer in this case is 68.3%

That will always be the answer when you are talking about the region from

one standard deviation below the mean to one standard deviation above the mean, as is the case here.
