Calculate Z=(X-μ)/σ

where

Z = Z score found in standard normal distribution tables

X = value of random variable, the diameter of 5.45 inchs

μ = mean diameter of population, 5.52 inches

σ = standard deviation of population, 0.46 inch.

Look up a standard normal distribution, which is usually given in percentage of population less than the Z-score, i.e. left tail (but check if this is the case).

What you need is the right tail, i.e. percentage of population greater than the Z-score. To get this from the table, subtract the left tail from ONE to get the right-tail.
