### What is a standardized unit that tells how far away each measurement is from the mean?

Standard deviation is a measure of the spread of data around the
mean. The standardized value or z-score, tells how
many standard deviations the measurement is away from the mean, and
in which direction.
z score = (observation - mean) / standard deviation
Standard deviation is the unit measurement. This tells what the
value a decimal is.

### In statistics what shows how far away a measurement is from the mean or average of the set?

The "z-score" is derived by subtracting the population mean from
the measurement and dividing by the population standard deviation.
It measures how many standard deviations the measurement is above
or below the mean. If the population mean and standard deviation
are unknown the "t-distribution" can be used instead using the
sample mean and sample deviation.

### According to the normal probability distribution 95 percent of the values of a normal random variable are contained w in plus or minus how many standard deviations from the mean Why is that important?

Approximately 2 standard deviations (1.96, actually) from the
mean. That is important to know that if one has a sample of 1000
values, if one selects a threshold at +/- 2 standard deviations
from the mean, then one expects to see about 25 values exceeding
those thresholds (on each side of the mean)
