Use the 68-95-99.7 Rule to find the percentage of people taking the test who score below 181. ---- Find the number of standard deviations 181 is to the left of the mean: (541-181)/120 = 3 ------- Draw a normal curve. According to the "Rule" only 0.3% of the people are outside the 99.7% limits. --- Only 0.3%2 = 0.15% or 0.0015 of the people are below 181. =================== Cheers, Stan H.
