Your math is flawed

by Ken D.
(Chicago, Illinois)

According to your chart:

95% of IQ scores fall between 70 and 130

Which means that 5% of the population is distributed in either scores below 70 or above 130.

Two lines later you state:

5% of people have an IQ below 70

Ergo, by your math, there are no people with an IQ over 130.

5% (below 70) + 95% (70 to 130) = 100%
