The Normal Distribution
The Normal Distribution
Standard deviation is a measure of the spread of a data
For normal distributions, we can determine the % of
values that lie within 1, 2 or 3 standard deviations of
the mean:
The Normal Distribution

68% of values lie within 1 standard deviation
of the mean (with 16% of values either side)
The Normal Distribution

95% of values lie within 2 standard deviations of the mean
(with 2.5% of values either side)
The Normal Distribution

99.7% of values lie within 3 standard deviations of the
mean (with 0.15% of values either side)
The Normal Distribution

50% of values lie either side of the mean
Summary Diagram

The diagram below can be used in all cases. It shows the % of
values that lie in each section of the normal distribution curve
Example 1
We always start by drawing diagrams. Each diagram below has been
scaled with a mean of 134 and standard deviation of 20

The Normal Distribution
Example 1 – solutions
a) About 68% of executives have blood pressure between 114 and 154 (diagram 1)
b) About 95% of executives have blood pressure between 94 and 174 (diagram 2)
c) About 99.7% of executives have blood pressure between 74 and 194 (diagram 3)
d) About 16% of executives have blood pressures above 154 (diagram 1)
e) About 2.5% of executives have blood pressures below 94 (diagram 2)
f) About 0.15% of executives have blood pressures below 74 (diagram 3)
g) About 50% of executives have blood pressures above 134 (diagram 4)
The Normal Distribution

Example 2
For this question we could again use the four separate diagrams that were used in example
1, but instead we can use the summary diagram (see next page). Again a scale is included
for a mean of 170 and standard deviation of 5
The Normal Distribution
The Normal Distribution
Example 2 – solutions
a)
vi.
Between 155cm and 185cm: 2.35% + 13.5% + 34% + 34% + 13.5% + 2.35% = 99.7%
More than 175cm: 13.5% + 2.35% + 0.15% = 16%
More than 170cm: 34% + 13.5% + 2.35% + 0.15% = 50%
Less than 160cm: 2.35% + 0.15% = 2.5%
Less than 165cm: 13.5% + 2.35% + 0.15% = 16%
Between 160cm and 180cm: 13.5% + 34% + 34% + 13.5% = 95%
b)
We already found that 16% are likely to have heights above 170cm. 16% of 5000 = 0.16 x 5000 = 800
i.
ii.
iii.
iv.
v.
So 800 women are expected to have heights above 170cm
The Normal Distribution

The advantage of the summary chart is for a question like this (not
symmetrical):
What % of these women have heights between 165cm and 180cm?
Answer: 34% + 34% + 13.5% = 81.5%
81.5% of women have heights between 165cm and 180cm
Z-scores
We can also determine how many standard
deviations above or below the mean a value lies by
standardising the data. The standardised scores
are called z-scores.
To calculate z-score:
Example 1
A set of data has a mean of 65 and a
standard deviation of 6. Standardise
the following scores:
a)
b)
c)
53
68
75
