I am using z= xthe mean/sd but i am not getting a correct answer.

I find this page very useful for these kind of problems.

The beauty is that you don't even have to enter the zscores (you can of course), but rather enter the mean and SD directly.
Since these kind of question rely on the use of tables or charts, I don't see any difference in using tables or a new type of application as this applet.
Let me know how it works for you
