A grower has a crop of onions with diameters that are normally distributed, with a mean diameter of 3 in. and a standard deviation of 0.25 in. What percent of the onions will be accepted by the grocery store? * 84% * 16% * 2.5% * 50%Answer by rapaljer(4667)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!50% of the onions are at least 3 inches, since this is the mean value. Between the mean 3.00 inches and the first standard deviation at 3.25 in will be 34% of the onions. This leaves 50%-34% or 16% of the onions that are more than 3.25 inches. Final answer is 16%.
