I am using z= x-the mean/sd but i am not getting a correct answer.
I find this page very useful for these kind of problems.
The beauty is that you don't even have to enter the z-scores (you can of course), but rather enter the mean and SD directly.
Since these kind of question rely on the use of tables or charts, I don't see any difference in using tables or a new type of application as this applet.
Let me know how it works for you
BTW, bobpursley answered the post just below this one for you yesterday.
