Name ___________________________

galaxies – that is, the speed at which they are moving Recessional

away from the Milky Way. The accompanying table velocities

contains the recessional velocities for a sample of (km/sec)

galaxies, measured in km/sec. Negative velocity 170 150

indicates the galaxy is moving towards us. 290 500

-130 920

(a) Calculate these numerical summaries: -70 500

-220 960

The mean _______________ 200 500

290 850

The standard deviation _______________ 200 800

300 1090

The median _______________ 650

The interquartile range _______________

(c) Judging from the data and your responses in parts (a) and (b), would you say this

distribution is skewed or approximately symmetric? Justify your response using

appropriate statistical terminology.

Acorn Statistics

study a sample of acorns was collected from different

locations, and their volumes, in cm3, were recorded. In the

Statistic Value

table at right are summary statistics for these data.

N 38

Mean 3.0

(a) Describe a procedure that uses these some or all of these

Median 1.8

summary statistics to determine whether outliers are present

St. Dev. 2.6

in the data.

Minimum 0.3

Maximum 10.5

3. An insurance agent is studying fire damage claims in a major city to see if the

insurance premiums are matched to the company's risk. She takes a random sample

of 20 claims, and finds the amount of each claim, in thousands of dollars. Her results

are shown below:

($1,000)

52 59 32 54 45

73 39 62 97 65

58 48 62 28 30

69 13 41 75 36

(a) Under what circumstances should one consider using a trimmed mean as a description

of the center of a distribution?

(b) Does the fire damage data exhibit the characteristic(s) that suggest a trimmed mean is

the appropriate statistic to calculate? Explain.
