Back to Standard Normal (Z): backwards? If I give you a probability, can you find the corresponding z value? àฏ called percentiles What is the z -score for the 25 th percentile of the N(0,1) curve? -0.67 90 th percentile? 1.68
Standardizing We can convert any normal to a standard normal distribution To do this, just subtract the mean and divide by the standard deviation z-score standardized value of x (how many standard deviations from the mean)

Standardizing Put differently… Suppose we want the area between a and b for x This is exactly the same area between a* and b* for z, where a* is the a standardized and b* is b standardized
Standard Normal Distribution The standardized values for any distribution always have mean 0 and standard deviation 1. If the original distribution is normal, the standardized values have normal distribution with mean 0 and standard deviation 1 Hence, the standard normal distribution is extremely important, especially it’s corresponding Z table.
