(1) mean of data set 1 is 7.22, median is 7.2 mean of data set 2 is 17.8, median is 7.8 (2) median is affected little by extreme measurements, whereas mean is influenced by extreme measurements (3) sample range of data set 1 is 4.0 sample range of data set 2 is 65.7 (4) s R/4 = 1 (5) Only 40% of the data fall within the interval (6.22, 8.22). Explanation: either the data set is too small to apply the empirical rule or R/4 is not a good estimate for s if the data set is too small. 5.

(Note that using empirical rule for this problem is not that good since when number of failures is less than 5, Normal approximation does not work here .) One can also use minitab to figure out the probabilities. 8. mean of sample mean = 3, standard deviation of sample mean = 1/sqrt(9) = 1/3 P(sample mean >3.1) = P( (Ybar – 3)/.333) > (3.1-3/.333) ) =P(Z>.3) =1-.6179=.3821 or 38.21%...

### What students are saying

• 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.
