Probability involving annuity immediate

Given:

3-year term annuity immediate with
present value of term annuity immediate is = 2.690404
standard deviation of term annuity immediate is = 0.535225

How would I find the probability of the present value of the annuity immediate being less than 2.0?

Is that everything you are given? Initially it seems like not enough info. You want to calculate 3_p_x (if i > 0).

My apologies, 3_p_x = 0.927.
i = 3%

Would the answer be 1 - prob of survival to age 3 since annual payments are 1? So, in order for present value to be less than 2, survival to age 3 must not happen? So, the answer would be 0.072?
