Empirical Rule
For data sets having a distribution that is approximately bell-shaped, the following properties
apply
About ______ of all values fall within _____ standard deviation(s) of the mean
About ______ of all values fall within _____ standard deviation(s) of the mean
About ______ of all values fall within _____ standard deviation(s) of the mean
Chebyshev’s Theorem
The proportion (or fraction) of any set of data lying within K standard deviations of the mean
1
is always at least 1  2 , where K is any positive number greater than 1.
K
If K = 2, then at least _____ of all values fall within 2 standard deviations of the mean.
If K = 3, then at least _____ of all values fall within 3 standard deviations of the mean.
