In this article, we will discuss step by step guide on how to find the area under the standard normal curve to the right of the z score.
The area under the Standard Normal Curve to the right of Z
Step to find the area under the standard normal curve to the right of z

Step 1: Find the area to the left of z.

Step 2: As the total area under the bell curve is 1.

Step 3: Subtract the area to the left from 1.
area to the right of z = 1 – area to the left of z.
 Step 4: Multiply it by 100 to calculate the percentage of area.
Let’s understand to find the area under the standard normal curve to the right of z using an example.

How do you find the area to the right of z = 0.52
To find the area to the right of given z follow the below steps:
Step 1: Find the area to the left of Z
To find the area to the left of the given z follow the below steps:

Choose a positive ztable as the given zscore (i.e 0.52) is positive.

Check the area value for the given z in the ztable.

Look at the first two digits(0.5) of the zscore on the left side column (yaxis) of the ztable and then the remaining number (0.02) on the xaxis on the topmost row.

The intersection of the two is 0.6985 (highlighted in red).

area to the left = 0.6985
Step 2: The total area under the bell curve is 1
Step 3: Subtract the area to the left from 1
area to the right of z = 1 – area to the left of z.
The area under the standard normal curve to the right of z = 1 – 0.6985 = 0.3015
Step 4: Multiply it by 100 to calculate the percentage of area.
area to the right of z = 0.3015*100 = 30.15%
Result: Result: The area to the right of z is 30.15% of the normal standard curve.
