The physical plant at the main campus of a large state university recieves daily requests to replace florecent lightbulbs. The distribution of the number of daily requests is bell-shaped and has a mean of 53 and a standard deviation of 8. Using the empirical rule (as presented in the book), what is the approximate percentage of lightbulb replacement requests numbering between 37 and 53?

Step 1

Solution: We are given that the distribution of the number of daily requests is bell-shaped and has a mean of 53 and a standard deviation of 8.

Step 2

We are required to find the approximate percentage of lightbulb replacement requests numbering between 37 and 53.

Step 3

The empirical rule of the normal distribution states:

68% of data lies within one standard deviations of the mean

95% of data lies within two standard deviations of the mean

99.7% o...
