    Tips: in a, they are saying the people are within 3 standard deviations from the mean. in b, they are more/less than 3 standard deviations from the mean. in c, they are strictly more than 3 standard deviations from the mean.

    Sorry, my language got a bit mixed up there. in b, they are saying: The percentage of people that are more than 3 standard deviations to the left and right in c, the percentage of people that are more than 3 standard deviations to the right. This will make sense of you look at it visually
