# gre math prob of a sample

posted by .

sample standard deviation = 3
sample mean = 68
n=30
what is the probability that one student selected at random from the sample will have a height within one sample standard deviation of the sample mean?

a. 1.00
b. 0.73
c. 0.57
d. 0.23

mean ± 1 SD = 68.26%

This is true for any normal distribution. Is there something you are not telling me?
