Appendix to Chapter 6:
z to P Calculator

For any given value of z, this page will calculate
  • the respective one-tailed probabilities of z and +z;
  • the two-tailed probability of±z;
  • and the proportion of the normal distribution falling between z and +z.
To proceed, simply enter the value of z in the designated cell and click "Calculate." Note that the programming for this page is able to perform meaningful probability calculations only for cases where |z|<5.
            z =
