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,
zscore for 10 = (107)/1.7 = 1.7647
zscore for 5 = (57)/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
