The resistance of certain carbon resistors is normally distributed with a mean value of 1200 ohms and a standard deviation of 120 ohms. What proportion of the resistors have resistances that differ from the mean resistance by more than 120 ohms?

If 120 ohms represents 1 standard deviation,  68.2%  of the resistors fall within this

 

So....100 - 68.2  = 31.8%  of the resistors differ from the mean by more than 120 ohms
