Step 1

The normal distribution:

A continuous random variable X is said to follow normal distribution with mean µ and standard deviation σ if the probability density function of X is,

Step 2

Calculating the z-value:

The required z-value is calculated as follows:

Step 3

The standard normal table is given below:

From the above table, it is clear that 0.60 is the average of the values 0.0606 and 0.0594. There for –Zα/2 is –1.555 (= (-1.55+-1.56)/2)
