# The z-Table

by M. Bourne

The *z*-Table on this page indicates the area to the **right** of the vertical center-line of the *z*-curve (or standard normal curve) for different standard deviations.

This table is very useful for finding probabilities when the event in question follows a normal distribution.

### Example

In the standard normal curve shown, the mean is `0` and the standard deviation is `1`.

The green shaded area in the diagram represents the area that is within `1.45` standard deviations above the mean. The area of this shaded portion is `0.4265` (or `42.65%` of the total area under the curve).

To get this area of `0.4265`, we read down the left side of the table for the standard deviation's first 2 digits (the whole number and the first number after the decimal point, in this case `1.4`), then we read across the table for the "`0.05`" part (the top row represents the 2nd decimal place of the standard deviation that we are interested in.)

z | 0.00 | 0.01 | 0.02 | 0.03 | 0.04 | 0.05 | 0.06 |
---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|

1.4 | 0.4192 | 0.4207 | 0.4222 | 0.4236 | 0.4251 | 0.4265 | 0.4279 |

We have:

(left column) `1.4\ +` (top row) `0.05 = 1.45` standard deviations

The area represented by `1.45` standard deviations to the right of the mean is shaded in green in the standard normal curve above.

You can see how to find the value of `0.4265` in the full *z*-table below.

Find the "`1.4`" row and follow it across. Then follow the "`0.05`" column down until the row and column meet at `0.4265`.

z | 0.00 | 0.01 | 0.02 | 0.03 | 0.04 | 0.05 | 0.06 | 0.07 | 0.08 | 0.09 |
