1) Jack weighs 160 pounds and his sister weighs 110 pounds.  If the mean weight for  men his age is 175 with a standard deviation of 14 pounds and the mean weight for  women is 145 with a standard deviation of 10 pounds, determine whose weight is closer  to "average."  Write your answer in terms of z-scores and areas under the normal curve. for Jack z =  07 . 1 14 15 14 175 160 - - = - = - σ μ x , when z = -1.07, area = .1423   for his sister  50 . 2 10 25 10 145 110 - = - = - = - x , when z = -2.50, area = .0062 Jack is closer to average, but he is still in the lower 14%, while his sister is in the bottom less  than 1% of the population. 2) Explain the difference between a population and a sample.  In which if these is it  important to distinguish between the two in order to use the correct formula?  mean;  median; mode; range; quartiles; variance; standard deviation. A sample is a subset of a population.  A population consists of every member of a particular  group of interest.  The variance and the standard deviation require that we know whether we  have a sample or a population. 3) The following numbers represent the weights in pounds of six 7-year old children  in Mrs. Jones' 2nd grade class. {25, 60, 51, 47, 49, 45} Find the mean; median; mode; range; quartiles; variance; standard deviation. mean = 46.166. ... median = 48 mode does not exist range = 35 Q1 = 45 Q2 = median = 48 Q3 = 51
