and 16.

1. What is the median of these data? Answer: 12.5

2. What is the interquartile range of these data? Answer: 5

b. there was a high correlation between ability and grade

4. The null hypothesis in an experiment would be

a. there is a high correlation between the independent and dependent variables

b. changing the independent variable has no significant effect on the dependent

variable (Answer)

That is, every group (experimental or control or whatever) is a sample of the same population, even though

the groups are differentiated by the independent variable.

variable
