Best Answer

90% area = 0.9000

Since the area lies between -z and +z, the area lies equally on the left and right side of the maximum ordinate

Therefore z value corresponding to 0.9000/2 = 0.4500 area shall be taken

z value is to be located from the area under the standard normal curve table

z value is 1.645

The z scores required are - 1.645 and + 1.645
