Hi This should be "easy task" like looking the table from "normal distribution's cumulative distribution function": > https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Standard_normal_table Normal distribution X~N(2,2) calculate probability P(X1<2) ? Clue= transform to "standard normal distribution" ANSWER= 0.744

Do you have a question? Are you asking if your answer is correct? X 1< 2 is the same as 2< X 1< 2 which is the same as 1< X< 3. With mean 2 and standard deviation 2, X= 1 corresponds to the "standard normal" variable z= (1 2)/2= 3/2 and X= 3 corresponds to z= (3 2)/2= 1/2. What are the probabilities N(z< 3/2) and N(z< 1/2)?
