Aircraft Design Engineers designing overhead bin storage in an aircraft must consider the sitting heights of male passengers. Sitting heights of adult males have a mean of 914 mm and a standard deviation of 36 mm (based on anthropometric survey data from Gordon, Churchill, et al.). Use the range rule of thumb to identify the minimum “usual” sitting height and the maximum “usual” sitting height. Which of those two values is more relevant in this situation? Why?
Step 1 of 1</p>
Given, Sitting heights of adult males have a mean of 914 mm and a standard deviation of 36 mm.
The Statistics range rule of thumb is used to decide if a value is unusual. The easy way for me to remember the rule of thumb formula is by the distance. If the distance is greater than or equal to 2 standard deviations away from the mean the event is unusual.
The minimum and maximum body temperatures that are within 3 standard deviations of the mean.
