At least what percentage of values will fall between 60 and 100? 75% b. At least what percentage of ...The average farm in the United States in 2004 contained 443 acres. The standard deviation is 42 acres. Use Chebyshev’s theorem to find the minimum percentage of data values that will fall in the range of 338–548 acres. All values of a data set must be within s√ n – 1of the mean. If a person collected 25 data values that had a mean of 50 and a standard deviation of 3 and you saw that one data value was 67, what would you conclude?Post your question
