Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well you must have learned the rule at some point, it seems to be standard issue for most stats courses. It's the empirical rule that says for a normal distribution, you can expect \(68\%\) of the distribution to fall within one standard deviation of the mean, \(95\%\) within two, and \(99.7\%\) within three.
