Life expectancy

The life expectancy of batteries has a normal distribution with a mean of 350 minutes and standard deviation of 10 minutes. What the range in minutes 68% of the batteries will last?
What is the range in minutes approximately 99.7% of batteries will last?

Correct result:

a1 =  340 min
a2 =  360 min
b1 =  320 min
b2 =  380 min

Solution:

m=350 min s=10 min  a1=m1 s=3501 10=340 min
a2=m+1 s=350+1 10=360 min
b1=m3 s=3503 10=320 min
b2=m+3 s=350+3 10=380 min
