I don't see a list... 
The folowing calculator link might help:

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

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
