According to the National Center for Health Statistics, the mean height of an American male is 69.3 inches and the mean height of an American female is 63.8 inches. The standard deviation for both genders is 2.7 inches. According to Chebyshev’s Theorem 75% of the data for your gender lies between what two heights? If height is assumed to be normal, what percentage of the data lies between those same two heights?

You can find the guided worksheets by signing into MyMathLab. Then select guided worksheets on the left hand side. Page 49 of the guided worksheet is really PDF page 57. At the top of the page you will see Normal Distributions. I attached the guided worksheet for just this question if that is easier for you. If you like it you can find the rest of the guided worksheets in MyMathLab.

Here is a video to help you with the discussion question. You will find information for both parts of the discussion question.
