Calculating Z Value

Calculate the z values for the event number 4, 5 and 6


where the target date are 10, 10 and 15 respectively.
Find the probabilities that those events will
not achieve their target dates using the given Z table .
Z Table
For event 4:
Z= (10-9)/0.53= 1.89
● For event 5:
Z=(10-10.5)/1.17= - 0.43
● For event 6:
z=(15-13.5)/1.22= 1.23
The z value for event 4 is 1.89 which equates to the
probability of approximately 3%.
The z value for event 5 is - 0.43 which equates to the
probability of approximately 67%.
The z value for event 6 is 1.23 which equates to the
probability of approximately 11%.
