7Using the unit normal table, find the proportion under the standard normal curve that liesto the right of each of the following:( equation: P (z>k) = 1-P (z< k) )az = 1.00P (z>1),P (z>1) = 1-P (z<1)Z table= P (z<1) = .8413Required probability = 1-.8413 = 0.1587bz = -1.05P (z>-1.05) = 1-P (z<-1.05)Z table = P (z<-1.05) = .146859Required probability = 1-.146859 = 0.85314cz = 0P (z>0) = 1-P (z<0)Z table = p-value is 0.5.
