The Empirical Rule 36 contains about 95% of the values in the population or the sample contains about 99.7% of the values in the population or the sample μ ± μ ± μ ± 99.7% 95% μ ±
Regardless of how the data are distributed, at least (1 - 1/ k 2 ) of the values will fall within k standard deviations of the mean Examples: (1 - 1/1 2 ) = 0% …… ..... k=1 (μ ± 1σ) (1 - 1/2 2 ) = 75% … .......... k=2 (μ ± 2σ) (1 - 1/3 2 ) = 89% ………. k=3 (μ ± 3σ) Tchebysheff’s (Chebyshev’s) Theorem (Aside) 37 within At least

A standardized data value refers to the number of standard deviations a value is from the mean Standardized data values are sometimes referred to as z-scores Can be used to compare data sets Will be addressed in more detail later in the course Standardized Data Values 38

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
