    1.
    a) Use Chebyshev's theorem to find what percent of the values will fall between 120 and 150 for a data set with mean of 135 and standard deviation of 7.5

    b) Use the Empirical Rule to find what two values 95% of the data will fall between for a data set with mean 234 and standard deviation of 12

    2.

    (1) (a) z1 = (Mean - x1)/SD = (135 - 120)/7.5 = 2 and z2 = (Mean - x2)/SD = (135 - 150)/7.5 = -2

    According to Chebyshev's ...
