Finding a z Score when Given an Area

This video shows how to find a z score when given an area value of 0.98. Using the TI, we must know the area to the left of the unknown z score: area must be expressed as left cumulative area to use the function invNorm(area, mean, sd). As usual, the mean and sd are optional entries for a standard normal distribution.

Find z Score When Given the area to Its Right using TI83/84 Calculator

Use the TI to find the z score when given a right side area. First, use the rule of complements to find the area to the left and then use invNorm(area, mean, sd).
