Perfectly suited for David Lane's great stats calculator

Just enter the values from your problem

I get 84.15%

If you must use your tables,

z-score for 10 = (10-7)/1.7 = 1.7647

z-score for 5 = (5-7)/1.7 = -1.17647

look up probability for 1.7647 in your tables

look up probability ofr -1.17647

subtract the two values to get .8415
