ASSIGNMENT: INTRODUCTION TO STATISTICS, MEASURES OF CENTRAL TENDENCY &MEASURES OF DISPERSIONQ1. (a)How does the study of statistics helps a manger in his day to day working?(b) What are the advantages and limitations of Arithmetic mean and Geometric mean?Q2. Universal Burger is concerned about product waste, so they sampled their burger wasterecord from the past year with the following results:-Number of burgers discarded during a shift2 16 4 12 19 29 24 7 1922 14 8 24 31 18 20 16 6Construct a frequency distribution for these data and a relative frequency distribution. Useintervals of 5 burgers.(a)

One of Universal’s goals is for at least 75% of shifts to have no more than 16 burgers
wasted. Can you determine from the frequency distribution whether this goal hasbeen achieved?(b)

What percentage of shifts has waste of 21 or fewer burgers?Q3..Before constructing a dam on the Colorado river, the US army performed a series of teststo measure the water flow past the proposed location of dam. The results of the testing wereused to construct the following frequency distributionRiver flow (thousands of gallons per minute) Frequency1001-1050 71051-1100 211101-1150 321151-1200 491201-1250 581251-1300 411301-1350 271351-1400 11Total 246(a)

Q4. Hayes Textiles has shown the following percentage increase in net worth over the last 5years:-1992 1993 1994 1995 19965% 10.5% 9.0% 6.0% 7.5%What is the average percentage in networth over the 5 year period?Q5.A professor has decided to use a weighted average in figuring final grades for his seminar
students. The homework average will count for 20 % of a student’s grade;
the mid term 25%;the final 35 %; the term paper 10 %and quizzes 10 %. From the following data compute the tfinal average for the five students in the semester:-Student Homework Quizzes Paper Midterm Final1 85 89 94 87 902 78 84 88 91 923 94 88 93 86 894 82 79 88 84 935 95 90 92 82 88(Note-This question requires knowledge of weighted mean.
