# Chebyshev's Inequality

Household income does not tend to follow a normal distribution in a particular state, yet average income is approximately $45,000/year in this state, with a standard deviation of about $9000. At least what percentage of household incomes in this state is likely to be between $18,000 to $72,000/year? Show your work as to how this is obtained.
