Three-Standard-Deviations Rule  Almost all the observations in any data set lie  within three standard deviations to either side of the mean Empirical rule  -(68-95-99.7 rule)  :  99.7% Chebychev’s rule:  89%

Three-Standard Deviation Rule Lie within one standard deviation of the mean:                                                        [  -s,   +s] Lie within two standard deviations of the mean:                                                      [   -2*s,   +2*s] Lie within three standard deviations of the mean:                                                      [   -3*s,   +3*s] In a sample distribution with mean= 0, s=1 [  -s,    +s]=[-1,1]  [  -2*s,   +2*s]=[-2, 2] [   -3*s,    +3*s]=[-3, 3]

Application of 3-SD Rule:     Average height for adult men in the Unite States is  70 inches (178 cm), with a sd of 3 in (8 cm).  68% have a height within (67–73) in          (70-3,70+3) 95% have a height within (64–76) in          (70-6,70+6)  99% have a height within (61-79) in          (70-9,70+9)
