ok i was given a set of data asked to create a graph of my choice to represent the data
then i'm asked
Does the sahpe of the distribution allow the use of the mean and the standard deviation to describe it?
ok how does the mean and the standard deviation effect the shape of the graph
what graph should i create so i can see the effect of the mean and the average on the shape of the graph

I just googled "graph of standard deviation" and this first result appears to have enough for you to answer the question
