A study reported that the mean concentration of ammonium in water wells in the state of Iowa was 0.71 milligram per liter, and the standard deviation was 1.09 milligrams per liter. Is it possible to determine whether these concentrations are approximately normally distributed. If so, say whether they are normally distributed, and explain how you know. If not, describe the additional information you would need to determine whether they are normally distributed.
