c. Between the mean and three standard deviations?
I know that
68% of data within 1 standard deviation of the mean
95% of data within 2 standard deviation of the mean
99.7% of data within 3 standard deviation
However, I do not know how to get the standard deviation in order to solve these problems without knowing what is in the 1400 sample of data...
PLEASE HELP!!!!
