The mean lifetime of a certain tire is 30,000 miles and the standard deviation is 2500 miles. If we assume the mileages are normally distributed, approximately what percentage of all such tires will last between 22,500 and 37,500 miles?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1(2250030000)/2500 (3750030000)/2500 What are these and what do these values tell us?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Um they tell us the mileage of the tire?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1zscores, standard deviations. What are the values? Do the calculations

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That's it. And what does the Empirical Rule say about that  3 standard deviations each way?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do we place the percentages?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The empirical rule says that if you go 1 standard deviation out from the mean that you will capture 68 % of your data, Go out one more stan dev (thats 2 so far) and you will capture 95% of your data, go out one more (thats 3 so far) and you will capture 99.7% of your data.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So how do we place this in this problem could you give me an example?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It's not a matter of placing or calculating. This is the point of the "Empirical Rule". You just read off the result. +/ 1 Standard Deviation is 68% +/ 2 Standard Deviations is 95% +/ 3 Standard Deviations is 99.7% In this case, pick the third one. Done.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So the answer to my question is 99.7% right
