A normal distribution can be completely defined by two parameters - the mean and the standard deviation. Given a normal distribution however, say X, how can I use just the mean and the standard deviation to give me conditional expected values for X<=0 and for X>0? Im guessing the distribution can be standardised to obtain a z-statistic.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
