Book Problem Set #1 Circle all of your final answers. From the book, do: 1.62 (page 49, refers to page 24) Note that the “stems are whole percents and the leaves are tenths of a percent” so the first number is 5.7. For part b, explicitly list all of the values that are outliers (list the numbers).

Calculate the mean and standard deviation for Group 1. Round the mean to two decimal places. Use that number to calculate the standard deviation. Round the standard deviation to two decimal places. #3) Consider a data set that includes every whole number from 1 to 111: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5,…. .111 What is the five-number summary of this data set? #4) Consider a data set that includes every whole number from 1 to 106: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5,…. .104, 105, 106 What is the five-number summary of this data set?...
