The lifetimes of lightbulbs of a particular type are normally distributed with a mean of 290 hours

and a standard deviation of 6 hours. What percentage of the bulbs have lifetimes that lie within 1

standard deviation to either side of the mean?

Approximately 34% of scores lie between the mean and one standard deviation in any normal distribution. Therefore, μ ± 1 SD contains approximately 68% of the cases.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
