Normal Distribution

Mean (x̄) is in the middle of the graph; bell shape.

Percentile

Multiply n by a percent represented as a decimal (ex. 20 * 0.8 for 20 terms at the 80th ____) to get the term number. Then, terms that fall above or below this term number are part of the solution to this problem.

Variance

Measures how spread out the data is in relationship to the mean. Figure out by doing Mean of the Squares - Square of the Mean.

Standard Deviation (σ)

Take the square root of the variance, and you get this.
