Compute the sample mean and sample standard deviation. Construct a relative frequency distribution and histogram of the data. Comment on whether there is any clear indication or not that the sample came from a population that depicts a bell shaped distribution. A developer of a new subdivision offers a prospective home buyer a choice of 4 deigns, 3 different heating systems, a garage or car-porch and a patio or screened porch. How many different plans are available to this buyer? A contractor wishes to build 9 car-porch houses, each different in design. In how many ways can he place these houses on a street of 6 lots are on one side of the street and 3 lots are on opposite side?
