Answer:17000 batteries

Step-by-step explanation:Three years and one month is equivalent to the mean minus one standard deviation.

Three years and seven months is equivalent to the mean plus one standard deviation.

For a normal distribution, we know that 68% of population is between mean ± 1 sd, then can be expected that 25000*68% = 17000 of batteries last between three years and one month and three years and seven months
