# The Normal Probability Distribution

The Normal Probability Distribution

In §6.2 we are introduced to the Normal Probability Distribution and the special case of

the Normal Probability Distribution, the Standard Normal Probability Distribution, which

is a Normal Probability Distribution with mean (u) zero and variance (σ2) one. One way to find probabilities from a Standard Normal Distribution is to use probability

tables, which are located inside the front cover of your textbook.

● According to the table, what is the probability when z ≤ -1.75? The probability

when z ≤ 1.75?

● What properties of probability distributions and specifically the Normal Probability

Distribution do you notice from the two probabilities that you have found in the

table?
