**PsyDAG**, Friday, June 14, 2013 at 1:22pm"less than half" = less than 2.3

Z = (score-mean)/SD

Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportion/probability related to the Z score.

**Tom7**, Friday, June 14, 2013 at 2:01pmz=(8-2.3)/1.4=4.07 graph 0.99998

is this the right way and how do you change the graph numbers since they are all 9's that would need to be rounding?
