Hello,

You need to find the Z-scores corresponding to 62,160 and 62,520

Z = (x - μ)/σ

So the Z-score for 62,160 is:

(62,160 - 60,000)/12,000 = .18

The Z-score 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%.
