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!!!!
