Percentage value

Guys see this 2 1/2 %. Does anyone know where it's coming from?

The distribution of plug diameters is approximately normal which means 95% will be within 2 standard deviations of the mean. The tails total 5%, split up equally between diameters which are too large and those which are too small (2.5% each).
