Choose 1 of the 2 below:
What is the that x is within standard deviations of the mean
The probability that X is k standard deviations of the mean is

What is the probability that X is within

2.25 standard deviations of the mean?

Chebyshev's Formula

The Probability that x is within k standard deviations of the mean

P(|X - μ| < kσ) ≥ 1 - (1/k2)

Plug in k = 2.25

P(|X - μ| < 2.25σ) ≥ 1 - 1

P(|X - μ| < 2.25σ) ≥ 1 - 1

P(|X - μ| < kσ) ≥ 1 - 0.19753086419753

Final Answer

  P(|X - μ| < kσ) ≥ 0.80246913580247

What is the Answer?
  P(|X - μ| < kσ) ≥ 0.80246913580247

What 6 concepts are covered in the Chebyshevs Theorem Calculator?

absolute value
A positive number representing the distance from 0 on a number line
chebyshevs theorem
estimates the minimum proportion of observations that fall within a specified number of standard deviations from the mean.
P(|X - μ|) ≥ kσ) ≤ 1/k2
A statistical measurement also known as the average
the likelihood of an event happening. This value is always between 0 and 1.
P(Event Happening) = Number of Ways the Even Can Happen / Total Number of Outcomes
standard deviation
a measure of the amount of variation or dispersion of a set of values. The square root of variance
A statement provable using logic
