Quick Statistics Problem

  1. Oct 3, 2006 #1
    For a sample of 100 wheat fields, the mean yield was 10 tons/acre and the standard deviation 2. Approximately how many fields out of the 100 should have yields in the 8 to 12 ton range? Show work.

    But you haven't (shown your work, that is). What have you done on this? Do you know how to find the standard normal variable? Do you have a table of the normal probability distribution? If not, here's a good one on line:
