The proportion of the area under the curve is also known as the P-value. This can be represented as a decimal or a percentage. For example, in the table above, 80% would be equal to a decimal amount of .80.

Often times this p-value is also considered to be the confidence interval. That’s because a confidence interval is a percentage of a data set that you feel is accurate.

For the use of the calculator above, you must select the P-Value from the drop down menu, then hit calculate. The calculator will return the corresponding z-score.
