In my opinion, I believe my histogram is skewed right. Initially it was kind of hard to determine what direction it was skewed because it was not clear to see visually but my data has a larger mean than the median. This clarifies that my data is skewed right even if it is by decimal values it is still skewed right. Another thing that clarifies that it is skewed right is that the larger data values are on the right side of my histogram instead of being evenly distributed. The skewness is 0.228 this means that since it is positive and it is not equal to zero it means that this graph is skewed right. I also went ahead and did an extra step of creating a histogram with a larger bin in increments of 5 so I can better see the way the data stretches out and it is easier to see that the skewness is pulled right because of the additional classes. Based on my data, I see that my data is more aligned with the empirical rule. The percent for one standard deviation is 60% for my actual data compared to the empirical rule percent

GBS 221 Dominguez which is 68%. I estimated that my data would be more similar to the Chebyshev data because the Chebyshev graph looks less symmetrical. After calculating the standard deviations, I can see that the empirical rule is more aligned to my data. I also believe that since my graph was nearly symmetrical that this may have something to do with the reasoning behind it correlating with the empirical percentages. My actual data had 100% for the 2 nd and 3 rd
