DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS: DATA (50 PTS.

)
Ten patients received the same diagnostic test. Their scores are reflected in the
table below. Answer the following questions using the data found in the table.
Partial credit may be given if correct work is shown in your calculations. Round the
numbers in the cells to the nearest hundredths place after you have completed all
the calculations through and including item w) below. You do not need to include
trailing zeros.
