First, please do not use all capitals. Online it is like SHOUTING. Not only is it rude, but it is harder to understand. Thank you.

99% = mean ± 1.645 SD, .005 of scores are beyond at each end.

82% = mean ± 1.342 SD, .09 of scores are beyond at each end.

These values were found in a table table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution."
