Question

the quantitative data set under consideration has roughly a bell-shaped distribution. Apply the empirical rule to answer the following: A qunatitative data set of size 70 has mean 40 and standard deviation 2. Approximately how many observations lie between 34 and 46?

Answer #1

the dataset has

we will find how many standard deviations are 34 and 46 away from the mean

for 34

for 46

These scores are 3 standard deviation away from the mean and using empirical rule

The Empirical Rule states that states that

68% of the data falls within one standard deviation.

95% of the data lies within two standard deviations.

Within three standard deviations is 99.7% ( almost all) of the data.

total number of observations that lie between 34 and 46 is 70*0.997=69.79 observations round off to integer it will be 70

The quantitative data set under consideration has roughly a
bell-shaped distribution. Apply the empirical rule to answer the
following question. A quantitative data set of size 80 has mean 50
and standard deviation 5. Approximately how many observations lie
between 45 and 55? Approximately nothing observations lie between
45 and 55. (Round to the nearest whole number as needed.)

According to the Empirical rule, sometimes called the Normal
rule, for a symmetrical, bell shaped distribution of data, we will
find that approximately what percent of observations are contained
within plus and minus one standard deviation of the mean A. 50 B.
68 C. 75 D. 95

If a variable has a distribution that is? bell-shaped with mean
23 and standard deviation 3?, then according to the Empirical?
Rule, what percent of the data will lie between 14 and 32??

The Acme Company manufactures widgets. The distribution of
widget weights is bell-shaped. The widget weights have a mean of 38
ounces and a standard deviation of 4 ounces. Use the Standard
Deviation Rule, also known as the Empirical Rule. Suggestion:

of the widget weights lie between and b) What percentage of the
widget weights lie between 26 and 46 ounces? % c) What percentage
of the widget weights lie...

are less than 240? (Round your answer to 1 decimal place.) b.
Approximately how many observations are less than 240? (Round your
answer to the nearest whole number.)

The Acme Company manufactures widgets. The distribution of
widget weights is bell-shaped. The widget weights have a mean of 54
