Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
The area under the entire normal
curve is 1. we want the z scores so that 0.88
is the area between those points under the curve then this means that 1-0.88=.12
is the distribution's area not between -z and z.
Since graph is symmetrical with
respect to z=0 therefore half of this area will be towards +z & half will
be towards –z hence Find the z score for
0.12/2 = .06 is the area to the right of
from table of the standard normal
z=1.55 gives very close value =
88% of the distribution's area lies between z=-1.55 and z=1.55
