@AG23 @nincompoop @horsegirl27 Can you please help me understand how to do these types of problems.?

Have you studied the Empirical Rule?

I have not.

A statistical rule stating that for a normal distribution, almost all data will fall within three standard deviations of the mean. Broken down, the empirical rule shows that 68% will fall within the first standard deviation, 95% within the first two standard deviations, and 99.7% will fall within the first three standard deviations of the mean.

ok so we have to figure out how many standard deviations that given interval is from the mean
the given interval is [24,30]
so how many standard deviations are those 2 values from the mean, which is 27?

I'm sorry, but what is a standard deviation.? I Quit school for a few purposes and here i am 3 years later and i just need a refreshing. Isn't that kind of like the mean of a data set.?

- CBARREDO1

well 1 std dev = 3
so those values are 3 units away from the mean, right?
and 1 std dev = 3 units
so we want k here --- [24, 30] = [27-3k, 27+3k]
so we can solve either of these equations
24 = 27 - 3k
or
30 = 27 + 3k
so what is K?
So that interval is considered "within 1 standard deviation of the mean"..ok?
so that's what we use to get our answer from the empirical rule -
A statistical rule stating that for a normal distribution, almost all data will fall within three standard deviations of the mean. Broken down, the empirical rule shows that 68% will fall within the first standard deviation, 95% within the first two standard deviations, and 99.7% will fall within the first three standard deviations of the mean.
within the first std dev is the same as within 1 std dev
68% will fall within the first standard deviation
that would be [27-3(3), 27+3(3)]
within 3 std deviations
this is within 1 standard deviation of the mean
if the given interval was [18, 36] then it would be 99.7%

- CBARREDO1

The answer would be 68%

- CBARREDO1

It is a quantity calculated to indicate the extent of deviation for a group as a whole.

okay sweet thank you (:
