I. x=25.4; μ =12.9; σ=3.7II. x=25.4; μ=15.3; σ=2.7 I.1. • I • II • z-scores are equal • cannot be determined since we don’t know the standard deviations of the populations • cannot be determined since we don’t know if the populations are normal The z-score for I is 3.38; the z-score for II is 3.74 Topic I Menu**0**The Quartile and Percentile positions of the value 10 in the set {10, 6, 8, 9, 12, 17, 32, 16}are: I.2. • Q3; 38 • Q2; 38 • Q2; 26 • Q3; 26 • none of these Topic I Menu**SOLUTION**0 The Quartile and Percentile positions of the value 10 in the set {10, 6, 8, 9, 12, 17, 32, 16}are: I.2. • Q3; 38 • Q2; 38 • Q2; 26 • Q3; 26 • none of these When the values are in order, there are 3 values below 10. This puts 10 in the 37.5 percentile and the 2nd quartile. Topic I Menu**0**The Standard Deviation of the set {5, 7, 7, 8, 10, 11} is 2. Which of the following sets also has a Standard Deviation of 2? I.3. • {4, 5, 8, 12, 14} • {2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12} • {3, 5, 5, 6, 8, 9} • {10, 14, 14, 16, 20, 22} • none of the above Topic I Menu**SOLUTION**0 The Standard Deviation of the set {5, 7, 7, 8, 10, 11} is 2. Which of the following sets also has a Standard Deviation of 2? I.3. • {4, 5, 8, 12, 14} • {2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12} • {3, 5, 5, 6, 8, 9} • {10, 14, 14, 16, 20, 22} • none of the above There is a uniform decrease of 2 units in this set. The st. deviation must be the same. Topic I Menu**0**If 12% of the values of a data set lie between a and b and d is added to each value, then which of the following is true? I.4. • 12% still lies between a and b • 12% lies between a + d and b + d • (12+d)% lies between a and b • (12+d)% lies between a + d and b + d • there is no way to tell how much data is between a and b Topic I Menu**SOLUTION**0 If 12% of the values of a data set lie between a and b and d is added to each value, then which of the following is true? I.4. • 12% still lies between a and b • 12% lies between a + d and b + d • (12+d)% lies between a and b • (12+d)% lies between a + d and b + d • there is no way to tell how much data is between a and b A uniform shift of all the data maintains the percentages of data in shifted intervals. Topic I Menu**If a distribution is relatively symmetric and mount-shaped,**order the following (from least to greatest) 1. a z-score of 1 2. the value of Q3 3. a value in the 70th percentile I.5. • 1, 2, 3 • 1, 3, 2 • 3, 2, 1 • 3, 1, 2 • 2, 3, 1 Topic I Menu**SOLUTION**0 If a distribution is relatively symmetric and mount-shaped, order the following (from least to greatest) 1. a z-score of 1 2. the value of Q3 3. a value in the 70th percentile I.5. • 1, 2, 3 • 1, 3, 2 • 3, 2, 1 • 3, 1, 2 • 2, 3, 1 The percentile of a z-score of 1 is about 84%, and the percentile of Q3 is 75% Topic I Menu**0**Which of the following would NOT be a correct interpretation of a correlation coefficient of r = -.30 I.6. • The variables are inversely related • The coefficient of determination is 0.09 • 30% of the variation between the variables is linear • There exists a weak relationship between the variables • All are correct Topic I Menu**SOLUTION**0 Which of the following would NOT be a correct interpretation of a correlation coefficient of r = -.30 I.6. • The variables are inversely related • The coefficient of determination is 0.09 • 30% of the variation between the variables is linear • There exists a weak relationship between the variables • All are correct The value of r2 explains the variation between the variables.

I.9. Since each value is a distinct distance from the mean, the z-scores must all be different • Two sets of data can have the same means but different variances • Two sets of data can have the same variance but different means • Two different values in a data set can have the same z-score • All the absolute values of z-scores for a data set can be equal • All of the above are true Topic I Menu**0**In a symmetric, mount-shaped distribution, what percentile has a z-score of -2? I.10. Topic I Menu**SOLUTION**0 In a symmetric, mount-shaped distribution, what percentile has a z-score of -2? I.10. 2.5th percentile We should be able to approximate this with the normal distribution. Area to the left of -2? On the TI-83: Normalcdf(-1E99, -2) = .02275 Topic I Menu**0**Lee’s z-score on his math test was 1.5. The class average was a 62.1 and the variance was 6.76. What was Lee’s actual grade on the test?

If not, show at least two answers:5 numbers have Q1=12, Median=15, Q3=18. Find the mean. I.12. {11, 13, 15, 17, 19} μ=15 { 9, 15, 15, 17, 19} μ=15 the data sets are not unique, but the mean is always 15! YES!!! surprisingly! Topic I Menu**0**The average grade on a math test given to two sections is 60.98. Section I has 27 students with a mean grade of 57.30. If the mean grade of Section 2 is 65.30, how many students are in section 2? I.13. Topic I Menu**SOLUTION**0 The average grade on a math test given to two sections is 60.98. Section I has 27 students with a mean grade of 57.30. If the mean grade of Section 2 is 65.30, how many students are in section 2? I.13. 23 students. we arrive at n=23 Topic I Menu**0**If the mean of 75 values is 52.6 and the mean of 25 values is 48.4; find the mean of all 100 values. I.14. • 51.55 • 52.76 • 56.55 • 56.88 • 59.12 Topic I Menu**SOLUTION**0 If the mean of 75 values is 52.6 and the mean of 25 values is 48.4; find the mean of all 100 values. I.14. • 51.55 • 52.76 • 56.55 • 56.88 • 59.12 75(52.6) + 25(48.4) 100 Topic I Menu**0**In skewed-right distributions, what is most frequently the relationship of the mean, median, and mode? I.15. • mean > median > mode • median > mean > mode • mode > median > mean • mode > mean > median • mean > mode > median Topic I Menu**SOLUTION**0 In skewed-right distributions, what is most frequently the relationship of the mean, median, and mode? I.15. • mean > median > mode • median > mean > mode • mode > median > mean • mode > mean > median • mean > mode > median The median is resistant, the mean, not at all. So a right skewed distribution will have a mean much higher than median, much higher than mode.
