Step 1

Hey, since there are multiple questions with subparts posted, we will answer first question with subparts. If you want any specific question to be answered, then please submit that question only or specify the subpart number in your message.

The 50-34-14% Rule:

For a normal distribution, the empirical rule (50-34-14% Rule) state that 50% of the observations falls above the mean value, 34% of the observations falls in between the mean value and 1 standard deviation above the mean, 13.5% of the observations falls in between 1 and 2 standard deviations above the mean, and 2.5% of the observations falls above 2 standard deviations of mean respectively.

Step 2

(a).

The value of 100 is 2 standard deviations above the mean value. Therefore, approximately 2.5% of scores will be above 100.

(b).

From the above result (a), approximately 97.5% (100–2.5) of scores will be below 100.

Step 3

(c).

The value of 90 is 1 standard deviation above the mean value. Therefore, approximately 16% (13.5+2.5) of scores will be above 90.

(d)...
