Signature}, _ / Question 0: MAKE SURE YOUR NAME APPEARS ON THE FRONT OF THIS EXAM. Question 1: [3 points total] During many of the games of last year’s Major League Baseball World
Series, the television broadcast displayed a message at the bottom of the screen to conduct a ‘virtual
poll”. As an example, a message at the bottom of the screen would read “Should the manager withdraw
the pitcher and replace him with a reliever?”. People would then have about 3 minutes to go online
and submit their anSWer through a. website. After 3 minutes the results (in one such game) were displayed as “65% Yes”, “35% No”. The design used in this “virtual poll’

containing 100 values. We discover that, for the two data sets, the sample means are identical and th
sample standard deviations are identical (that is, 351 = $2 and 31 = 32). Thus, the two data sets
also be identical. Circle one: [True] Question 5: [3 points] An accountant reports that 90% of the company’s employees earn less than '
the mean salary for the entire company. Clearly, this must be a mistake since this is imos ‘1. Circle one: [True] Question 6: [3 points} If the correlation between the quantitative variables X and Y is zero, th
X and Y are unrelated. Circle one: [True] Question 7: [12 points total] The following are side by side boxplots for calories found in varieties

dustries. Since the machines which produce the ball bearings are prone to error, the diameter (in millimeters) of the ﬁnal products vary. Suppose the diameter of a randomly chosen ball bearing
closely follows the N (45, 2.3) distribution. The industry clients have now enacted strict quality guidelines and will reject any ball bearing with a
diameter exceeding 50 millimeters. (a) {10 pts] What proportion of ball bearings would we reject? l LJLDOU\C\ bC) ream (b) [10 pts} What is the diameter found in the top 10% of the largest ball bearings from this distribution?

ﬁreﬁghters just causes more damage”. Explain in 8 sentences or less why it is reasonable for a positive correlation to exist between X and Y
