# Find the Area under Standard Normal Curve to the right of Z

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.

## Area under the Standard Normal Curve to the right of z

Step to find the area 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 given z follow the below steps:

• Choose a positive z-table as the given z-score (i.e 0.52) is positive.
• Check the area value for the given z in the z-table.
• Look at the first two digits(0.5) of the z-score on the left side column (y-axis) of the z-table and then the remaining number (0.02) on the x-axis on the topmost row. The area under the standard normal curve- z table
• The intersection of the two is 0.6985 (highlighted in red).
• area to the left = 0.6985

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.

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%
