**Joy Chapman**, Tuesday, October 18, 2011 at 1:17pmAll it has in the back of my textbook is Appendix A where it states, "Areas Under the Normal Curve (Z-Table)." Is this the correct table and what exactly am I supposed to look for? There are no straight numbers because on this table is just numbers that are in decimals. The table doesn't have straight numbers such as 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, etc.
