Intelligence quotients on the Stanford-Binet intelligence test are normally distributed with a mean of 100 and a standard deviation of 16. Use the 68-95-99.7 rule to find the percentage of people with the following IQs:

a.) between 84 and 100

b.) below 52

  • contemporary math -

    a) One standard deviation is 16, that is a score of 84. 68 percent will have a score of 100+-16, so 34 percent will have a score from 84 to 100.
    b. How many standard deviations is a score of 52?

  • contemporary math -

    thank you

    The standard devation is the same for b.) as it is for a.)

  • contemporary math -

    Yes, of course it is. So how many standard deviations is it to a score of 52?

  • contemporary math -

    oh ok so 2.

  • contemporary math -

    I meant 3

    so would it be

    100-16(3) =52
    100-99.7=.03

  • contemporary math -

    where can I learn the basics of contemporary math? I have a hard time figuring this stuff out

  • contemporary math -

    What exactly is contemporary math anyway? How does one define it exactly?
