R Assignment Statistics W1211 Ji Meng Loh Homework 3 2: Min. 1st Qu. Median Mean 3rd Qu. Max. 0.1337 0.2525 0.3509 0.5917 0.5908 4.3480 It is clear that the overwhelming majority of the whales take on less than one unit of time to complete the swim of one kilometer. The mean time of 0.5917 is somewhat innaccurate because it is skewed by extreme outliers, mainly values the maximum value of 4.3480 which is more than 700 percent greater than the average value and an additional value estimated to be around 4.0. The Median is much more accurate of this population and is also much smaller than the mean value. A trimmed mean would probably bring the average to a value that was closer to the median value of 0.3509. The histogram with five bins shows that the distribution is clearly skewed to the right. The histogram with twenty bins shows that the mode is more precisely described in the range 0.25 to 0.5.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
