Scores on the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (a standard “IQ test”) for the 20 to 34 age group are approximately normally distributed with μ = 110 and σ = 25. Use the 68-95-99.7 rule to answer these questions. (a) About what percentage of people in this age group have scores above 110? (b) About what percent have scores above 160? (c) In what range do the middle 95% of all score lie? 3 .
