    Change your percents to decimals. If you're using the z table you want to find the four-digit decimal that's closest, and then find the corresponding z score.

    1) .7486 is closest to .7490. The z score is 0.67

    2) Since this goes to the right, first subtract your decimal from 1 because the table is set up for areas to the left of z.

    1 - .2510 = .7490 Your answer will be the same as the first.
