    Question please stat problem help




    2 questions....

    1. Suppose that the distribution of annual salaries for sales associates at this store is bell-shaped. Use the empirical rule to calculate the percentage of sales associates with salaries between $30,000 and $35,000.

    answer is: approximately 68%
    how is that? how do you come up with that answer? I'm lost and confused.



    2. A company plans to interview 10 recent graduates for possible employment. The company has 3 positions open. How many groups of 3 can the company select?

    answer is: 120
    I attempted to us the counting rule for combinations, but I came up with a totally different answer....can someone please go through the step by step process of solving this one please?

    Question


    I think you need to know the mean and standard deviation to apply the empirical rule. I'm lost too.
