If your data is not in ascending order of sales, hit "sort" so the second part of your question will be easier.

I get mean = 32.3

sigma = 6.45 so 2 sigma = 2*6.45 = 12'9

and here is your list ordered

mean - 12.9 = 19.4 , below your whole list

21.0

23.0

24.0

24.0

24.0

note here is mean - 6.45

27.0

27.0

27.0

27.0

29.0

31.0

32.0

note mean = 32.3

33.0

33.0

33.0

33.0

34.0

35.0

36.0

38.0

note - here is mean + 6.45

40.0

43.0

44.0

45.0

note - here is mean + 12.9 - below your list

your whole list is within 2 sigma of mean 100%

19/28 is within 1 sigma of mean

100 * 19/28 = 68% within 1 sigma
