# AS level Maths statistics Question HELP!!!!Watch

#1
This is from the Edexcel Statistics and Mechanics textbook for the new spec:

Estimate the number of days in September 2015 where the daily mean temperature in Camborne is more than one standard deviation greater than the mean.

It's C and I got 8 days when the answer is 5 days?

so the temperature limit which you have to look above is STANDARD DEVIATION + MEAN. So the S.D could be 3.1 and the mean temperature could be 20 degrees. This means the values you have to look for are above 3.1+20.
