**ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS REPORT
**

1.

**Give the significance of Grubbs test.
**

Outliers are extreme values that stand out from other values of a distinct data set. They have a

substantial impact on statistics and consequently should be removed in most cases. Many

statistical methods are sensitive to the presence of these outliers. The Grubb’s test is used to

detect an outlying value in a set. It determines whether or not it can be classified as suitable to

the same data set, and can therefore be omitted from succeeding calculations if it is deemed

unfitting and erroneous.

2.

**Give the significance of the mean and standard deviation.
**

The mean is a measure of central tendency. It is primarily the model of the data set, the value

that is most typical. However, it is easily affected by extreme data present in a set, because it is

concluded by averaging values with no regard for assosciated probabilities. The mean is ideal

to use when the data set has values that are evenly spread with no exceptional high or low

values.

The standard deviation is a measure of variation in data, how dispersed and spread out the

data set is from your mean. It can be used to determine the proportion of values that lie within

the range of the mean value. Essentially, it lets you know how reliable the concluded average is

as a representation of your data.

3.

**Give the significance of the confidence interval.
**

The confidence interval is a range of values for a variable of interest that has a specified

probability of including the true value of the variable. It provides an aproximate interval

around the point estimate within which the true value can be anticipated to be included in, as

determining the accurate point is not too feasible.

4.

How do the statistics calculated from data set 1 differ from those obtained from data set 2?

The first data set has a 3.6137 mean while the second data set has 3.6198. There is a 0.0061

difference between the two means. Having different means, this would result to different
