**MathGuru**, Tuesday, June 11, 2013 at 6:59pmChebyshev's theorem says:

1. Within two standard deviations of the mean, you will find at least 75% of the data.

2. Within three standard deviations of the mean, you will find at least 89% of the data.

Part (i) is within two standard deviations of the mean.

Part (ii) is within three standard deviations of the mean.

**MathGuru**, Tuesday, June 11, 2013 at 7:06pmThere is a formula you can use to find part b).

1 - (1/k^2) = .84 (or 84%)

k = 2.5 (standard deviations)

Therefore, find the amounts within 2.5 standard deviations of the mean. Remember that one standard deviation is equal to $340.

I'll let you take it from here.
