In the article “Assessing Friendship Motivation During Preadolescence and Early Adolescence”, J. Richard and B. Schneider described the properties of the Friendship Motivation Scale for Children (FMSC), a scale designed to assess children’s desire for friendships. Two interesting conclusions are that friends generally report similar levels of the FMSC and girls tend to score higher on the FMSC than boys. Boys in the seventh grade scored a mean of 9.32 with a standard deviation of 1.71, and girls in the seventh grade scored a mean of 10.04 with a standard deviation of 1.83. Assuming that FMSC scores are normally distributed, determine the percentage of seventh-grade boys who have FMSC scores within a. one standard deviation to either side of the mean. b. two standard deviations to either side of the mean. c. three standard deviations to either side of the mean. d. Repeat parts (a)-(c) for seventh-grade girls.

Solution

VerifiedUse the empirical rule:

a. 68.26% is within one standard deviation from the mean.

b. 95.44% is within two standard deviations from the mean.

c. 99.74% is within three standard deviations from the mean.

d. 68.26% is within one standard deviation from the mean.

95.44% is within two standard deviations from the mean.

99.74% is within three standard deviations from the mean.
