Calculation Of Standard Deviation And Chebyshev’s Theorem Application


1. According to a survey of the top 10 employers in a major city in the Midwest, a worker spends an average of 413 minutes a day on the job. Suppose the standard deviation is 26.8 minutes and the time spent is approximately a normal distribution. What are the times that approximately 99.73% of all workers will fall? 

A. [387.5 438.5]

B. [386.2 439.8]

C. [372.8 453.2]

D. [359.4 466.6]

E. [332.6 493.4]


2. When using the Chebyshev's theorem to obtain the bounds for a 99.73 percent of the values in a population, the interval generally will be ___________ the interval obtained for the same percentage if normal distribution is assumed (empirical rule). 

A. Shorter than

B. Wider than

C. The same as

D. A Subset of

    Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
