HW 4 Solutions Question 1 A) Frequency 180 165 150 135 120 105 90 75 25 20 15 10 5 0 200 180 160 140 120 100 80 60 40 30 20 10 0 C1 C2 Histogram of C1, C2 Both sample 1 and sample 2 look relatively normal. Sample 2 has a larger range, but neither seem to be either bi-modal or skewed. Percent 200 150 100 50 99.9 99 95 90 80 70 60 50 40 30 20 10 5 1 0.1 200 150 100 50 99.9 99 95 90 80 70 60 50 40 30 20 10 5 1 0.1 C1 C2 Mean 123.9 StDev 21.19 N 200 AD 0.210 P-Value 0.860 C1 Mean 126.8 StDev 20.86 N 200 AD 0.144 P-Value 0.969 C2 Probability Plot of C1, C2 Normal - 95% CI The normal probability plot again shows that both samples satisfy normality. There seems to be an outlier in the second sample, but we can expect up to 5% of the data points to be outside of the 95% bound lines so there are no problems here. B) Repeat Part a above using n = 100 and n = 10. Try to get a feel for how much variation there is around a straight line when you are sampling normal data. How do the plots change with sample size?
