Hello,
You need to find the Zscores corresponding to 62,160 and 62,520
Z = (x  μ)/σ
So the Zscore for 62,160 is:
(62,160  60,000)/12,000 = .18
The Zscore for 62,520 is:
(62,520  60,000)/12,000 = .21
Using a calculator the area under the curve corresponding to the interval of .18 to .21 is approximately .0117, so the probability is approximately
1.17%
