 ```If a frequency distribution of a population conforms to the so-called normal distribution, then, what percentage of measurments in the population fall within two standard deviations of the population mean?```
 ```Hi douger-ga, Assuming a normal distribution, 95% of the measurements will fall within tow standard deviations of the population mean. The "68-95-99.7" rule (also called "empirical" rule) answers your question quite clearly. 68% of the measurements will fall within one standard deviation, 95% of the measurements will fall within two standard deviations and 99.7% of the measurements will fall within three standard deviations. Here are some sites where you can read more about this rule: http://www.oswego.edu/~srp/stats/6895997.htm http://www.socsci.mcmaster.ca/magee/2j3/pages/app2.html http://www.wayworld.com/samples/SPC/spc_05.htm Hope this helps! playhosea-ga``` Clarification of Answer by playhosea-ga on 02 Jul 2003 21:51 PDT ```sorry for the typo, the first sentence should read "Assuming a normal distribution, 95% of the measurements will fall within two standard deviations of the population mean."```
