Chebyshev's theorem (empirical rule) is applicable to:
a bell-shaped distribution, a skewed distribution, a multimodal distribution
A, B and C
According to the empirical rule, the percentage of values that fall within one deviation of the mean is approximately:
68%
According to Chebyshev's theorem, the minimum percentage of values that fall within 1.5 standard deviations of the
mean is:
55.56%
According to the empirical rule, the percentage of values that fall outside two standard deviations of the mean is
approximately:
5%
According to Chebyshev's theorem, the minimum percentage of values that fall within 3 standard deviations of the
mean is:
89%
According to the empirical rule, the percentage of values that fall within three standard deviations of the mean is
approximately:
99.7%
The mean age of all high school teachers in New York state is 41 years and the standard deviation is 6 years.
According to Chebyshev's theorem, the percentage of teachers in New York who are 23 to 59 years old is at least:
88.89
The mean age of all high school teachers in New York state is 50 years and the standard deviation is 7 years.
According to Chebyshev's theorem, the percentage of teachers in New York who are 25.5 to 74.5 years old is at
least:
91.84
The ages of all high school teachers in New York state have a bell-shaped distribution with a mean of 43 years and a
standard deviation of 6 years. According to the empirical rule, the percentage of teachers in this state who are 31 to
55 years old is approximately:
95%
The annual incomes of all MBA degree holders working in Los Angeles have a bell-shaped distribution with a mean
of \$71,000 and a standard deviation of \$8,000. According to the empirical rule, the percentage of MBA degree
holders working in Los Angeles who have an annual income of \$63,000 to \$79,000 is approximately:
68%
The annual incomes of all MBA degree holders working in Los Angeles have a bell-shaped distribution with a mean
of \$72,000 and a standard deviation of \$6,000. According to the empirical rule, the percentage of MBA degree
holders working in Los Angeles who have an annual income of \$54,000 to \$90,000 is approximately:
99.7%

A qualitative variable is the only type of variable that:
cannot be measured numerically
A Quantitative variable is the only type of variable that:
assume numeric values for which arithmetic operations make sense
Quantity is called Variance
Quantity is called Deviation of from the mean

To monitor campus security, the campus police office is taking a survey of the number of students in a parking lot
each 30 minutes of a 24-hour period with the goal of determining when patrols of the lot would serve the most
students. If X is the number of students in the lot each period of time, then X is an example of
Discrete variable
The chancellor of a major university was concerned about alcohol abuse on her campus and wanted to find out the
proportion of students at her university who visited campus bars on the weekend before the final exam week. Her
assistant took a random sample of 250 students. The answer on "whether you visited campus bars on the weekend
before the final exam week" from students in the sample is an example of
