Using the scores below, how many scores were within one standard deviation of the mean? How many scores were within two standard deviations of the mean?99 34 86 57 73 85 91 93 46 96 88 79 68 85 89The scores for math test #3 were normally distributed. If 15 students had a mean score of 74.8% and a standard deviation of 7.57, how many students scored above an 85%?If you know the standard deviation, how do you find the variance?To get the best deal on a stereo system, Louis called eight appliance stores and asked for the cost of a specific model. The prices he was quoted are listed below:$216 $135 $281 $189 $218 $193 $299 $235Find the standard deviation.A company has 70 employees whose salaries are summarized in the frequency distribution below.Salary Number of Employees5,001–10,000 810,001–15,000 1215,001–20,000 2020,001–25,000 1725,001–30,000 13Find the standard deviation.Find the variance.6. Calculate the mean and variance of the data. Show and explain your steps. Round to the nearest tenth.14, 16, 7, 9, 11, 13, 8, 10Create a frequency distribution table for the number of times a number was rolled on a die.
