The empirical rule says that for data sets having a distribution that is approximately bell-shaped, the following properties apply.

  • Approximately 68% of all values fall within 1 standard deviation of the mean.
  • Approximately 95% of all values fall within 2 standard deviations of the mean.
  • Approximately 99.7% of all values fall within 3 standard deviations of the mean.

a. the values are 3 standard deviations away from the mean, so the percentage of values within that range will be 99.7%

b. by similar reasoning the values are 1 standard deviation away from the mean -- or will contain 68% of the values.
