Description
where i goes from 1 to N Interpreting the standard deviation: Empirical Rule: If the data has a bell-shaped histogram, then 1) About 68% of all data values fall within one standard deviation of the mean 2) About 95% of all data values fall within two standard deviations of the mean 3) About 99.7% of all data val fall within three standard deviations of the mean Chebyshev's Rule: (for any shape of the distribution) 1) At least 75% (3/4) of all the data values fall within two standard deviations of the mean. 2) At least 89% (8/9) of all data values fall within three standard deviations of the mean. Actual formula for Chebyshev's Theorem: Given a real number k 1 nd given any set of numbers, the proportion (or fraction) of thos numbers that lie within k standard deviations of the mean is at least 1-- of all data values lie within two standard deviations of the Note if k 2, then at least 1 mean as stated above, and if k 3, then at least 1- of all data values lie within three standard deviations of the mean as stated above Definition: The z-score is the number of standard deviations between a given value of x in a data set and the mean. It is found by using the following formula for the sample and for the population. If z 0, then x is above the mean. If 0, then x is below the mean.
