Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

The empirical rule

The empirical rule states that for a normal distribution, nearly all of the data will fall within three Standard deviations of the mean. The empirical rule can be broken down into three parts:

• 68% of data falls within the first standard deviation from the mean.
• 95% fall within two standard deviations.
• 99.7% fall within three standard deviations.

The rule is also called the( 68-95-999)Its also called the Three Sigma Rule.

The correct answer is 68%
