\(\mu = 30\), \(\sigma = 5\), \(z = -2\).
We use the formula for normal distribution:
\(z=\frac{x-\mu}{\sigma}\)
\(x=\sigma z+\mu\)
\(x=5(-2)+30\)
\(x=-10+30\)
\(x=20\)
The raw score corresponding to \(z = -2\) for normal distribution with \(\mu = 30\), \(\sigma = 5\) is 20.

Use the following Normal Distribution table to calculate the area under the Normal Curve (Shaded area in the Figure) when \(Z=1.3\) and \(H=0.05\);
Assume that you do not have vales of the area beyond \(z=1.2\) in the table; i.e. you may need to use the extrapolation.
Check your calculated value and compare with the values in the table \([for\ z=1.3\ and\ H=0.05]\).
Calculate your percentage of error in the estimation.
How do I solve this problem using extrapolation?
