An accelerated life test on a large number of type-D alkaline batteries revealed that the mean life for a particular use before they failed is 19.0 hours. The distribution of the lives approximated a normal distribution. The standard deviation of the distribution was 1.2 hours. About 95.44% of the batteries failed between what two values?
8.9 and 18.9
12.2 and 14.2
14.1 and 22.1
