hit "clear", then enter your data on the left, then "calc"

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
33.0
34.0
35.0
35.0
35.0
36.0
38.0
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
