-1 std deviation means you are one standard deviation less than the mean the mean is 470 and 15th percentile is 340 the difference is about 1 standard deviation
phi

based on the choices, we have to be more accurate. based on your curve, -1 std deviation is at the 16th percentile (2+14= 16) and we are given the 15th percentile = 340 |dw:1436991677454:dw|

the red line at -1 std dev is a little bit closer to the mean... so the difference should be a little bit less than 130

Hey so how did you know that it was at the 16th percentile?

so if it's a little bit less than 130 it's 125?
phi

if you have a z-table, you could look up the z score for 0.15 (I think it's about 1.04) and then say 1.04*s= 130 s= 130/1.04 s= 125
