Assume that X and Y have a bivariate normal distribution with parameters

You left out the mean of Y.

The first part is basic, the second you need to know the conditional distribution of Y given X.

You can find that after....

'In the bivariate case the conditional distribution of Y given X is'

in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multiva...l_distribution

Then perform the usual standardization to use the N(0,1) table. - November 21st 2009, 09:09 PMIntsecxtanx
Yes, I just realized. Thank you for your help!
