NAME

Due Tuesday September 6, 11:59 PM EDT

Answer the following questions showing all work. Full credit will not be given to answers

without work shown. If you use Minitab Express include the appropriate output (copy +

paste) along with an explanation. Output without explanation will not receive full credit.

Round all answers to 3 decimal places. If you have any questions, post them to the course

discussion board.

1. A sample random sample of 6 STAT 200 students was obtained. Their Lesson 1 quiz scores

were 15, 16, 18, 19, 20, and 20 [20 points]

A. By hand (i.e., do NOT use software), compute the mean, median, mode, variance,

standard deviation, range, and interquartile range for this sample. Show all work. Use

the table below when computing the variance.

B. Using the IQR method, are there any outliers? Show all work.

2. Patti, an undergraduate statistics major, is preparing to apply for graduate school. She has

taken both the GRE (Graduate Record Exam) and the GMAT (Graduate Management

Admissions Test). GRE quantitative scores have a mean of 150 and standard deviation of 8.75.

GMAT quantitative scores have a mean of 30 and standard deviation of 10. This student

scored a 165 on the GRE quantitative scale and 45 on the GMAT quantitative scale. [20 points]

NAME

Due Tuesday September 6, 11:59 PM EDT

A. Make a boxplot of all town populations.

B. Make a histogram of all town populations.

C. Interpret your boxplot and histogram in terms of shape and outliers.

D. Use Minitab Express to compute the mean, median, mode, standard deviation,

range, and interquartile range for the town populations. Include a copy of your

output.

E. If you had to select only one measure of central tendency, which is the best measure

to use with this data? Why?

F. If you had to select only one measure of variability, which is the best measure to use

with this data? Why?

G. Use Minitab Express to take a simple random sample of 10 towns? populations, and

then find the mean and standard deviation for that sample.

H. Repeat part (G) two more times.

I. Were your results in parts (G) and (H) the same each time? Why or why not? (You

will need AT LEAST three sentences to completely answer this question)
