Question/Section
Section 8.1: Representing Data Displays and Choosing Appropriate Types of Displays

#2.) (a) What is the frequency score of 8?

b.) What is the "relative" frequency of the value of 13?(in


fraction form)

c.) Which branch of the plot contains the most values?


(0,1,2,3, or 4)
d.) Assuming you need 10 classes, what will the class
width be?
e.) Looking at the histograph - what is the value of the
largest outliers?

#18) What is the range of the Gas Prices?


Section 8.2: Understanding the Relationships Between Variables when Displayed Graphically
#2) In which interval was the MOST fish recorded?

#2) In which interval were the LEAST fish recorded?

#6)(a) What class average for someone with ACT of 25?


b.) What ACT score for someone with a class average of
60?
#12) Based on the graph shown, answer the question:
"Are the process averages within the warning limits
or does the performance of the machine need
investigation?"
#14) Choose to make a BAR GRAPH and use it to answer
the following:
a.) Which information should go on the horizontal axis
(age or death rate)?
b.) How many intervals should there be for age?

c.) What should the starting and ending values be on the


death rate axis? Pick one: (1-14), (0-15), (5-17), (0-100)
Section 8.3: Calculating Measures of Center and Measures of Spread and Understanding What they R
#2) Find mean, median, mode and midrange(You DO NOT
need to USE FORMULAS - USE EXCEL OR AN ONLINE STAT
CALCULATOR)
Mean =
Median =
Mode =
Midrange =
#8) If you are given the information that the mean = 80,
the median = 80 and the mode = 80 use that to answer
part C of the problem.
c.) WHAT score?
c.) Is it reasonable?

#12) Find Range, Variance, Standard Deviation, and IQR


for the data (You DO NOT need to USE FORMULAS - USE
EXCEL OR AN ONLINE STAT CALCULATOR)
Range =
Variance =
Standard Deviation =
IQR =

# 9 - 11) If you know the standard deviations for each set


of data from # 9-11 to be:
#9: Std. Dev. = 1.472
#10: Std. Dev. = 0.7071
#11: Std. Dev. = 6.47
Use that information to answer the question: "Which
data set is the MOST consistent?"

#20) Only answer a and b


a.) Which team had the largest range?
a.) Which team had the smallest range?
b.) Which team had the largest IQR?
b.) Which team had the smallest IQR?
#22) Age of Youngest =
Review Chapter 8

#2) Make the graphs but do not paste them just look at
them and answer the question: "which graph provides
the best picture of the distribution?"
#6) Give one reason it will be biased

#8) When the city accountant makes his decision, he


needed to determine which value is MOST impacted by
extreme incomes and avoid that one. Based on this,
which one would you advise him to use? Mean or Median?
Section 9.1: Basci Probability and Additive Probability

#2.) P{m, a, t, h}

#4.) P{rolling an odd number}

# 6.) P{# divisible by 2 or 3}

#12.) P{not King and not spade}

#18.) P{slip contains a vowel}

#28.) P{A or E}

#32.) (a) P{boy and boy}

b.) P{first is girl and second is boy}

c.) P{neither is a girl}

d.) P{at least one is a girl}

#34.) P(no heads)

Section 9.2: Conditional Probabilities and Probabilities of Independent Events and Counting Techniqu

#4.) How many three-symbol codes?

#8.) Number of elements in sample space?

#10.) P(both are spades if first was spade)

#16.) P(sum is 8 given that one is a 5)

#20.) (a) P( Black and Black) (without replacement)


b.) P(Black and Black) (with replacement)

#22.) a.) P(medication helped if drug received)

b.) P(medication helped if placebo received)

c.) P(Perceived that "medication" helped)

#26.) a.) P(perfect score on 4 item test)

b.) P(perfect score on 10 item test)
