14. Approximately ______ of the area (cases or observations) under the
normal curve is found between 1 standard deviation above and 1 standard deviation below the mean. (2 Points)

The answer is P(|Z|>1)=0.3173

You can use z-table to find P(Z<-1)=P(Z>1)=0.1587.

15. What percentage of area (or cases or observations) is found above a z value of 1.96? ._____ (2 Points)

The ...
