Stat 371 Fall 2017 2017 Assignment #6 — Solutions 1. Consider the following data that represents a random sample out of a very large population: 0.43, 4.89, 5.29, 5.16, 0.59, 7.50, 4.48, 6.22 (a) Create a QQ plot of the data. Do you think it is reasonable to assume that the population distribution is normal? Explain your answer. The QQ plot is below: 1.5 1.0 0.5 0.0 0.5 1.0 1.5 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 QQ Plot of Data Theoretical Quantiles Sample Quantiles The plot is not very straight, so normality does not look like a good assumption. (b) Denote μ to be the population mean. Regardless of your answer to (a), use R to perform the bootstrap with 2000 resamplings to create a 90% CI for μ . Since answers will di er for this question, it is critical that you show your R code and output to get full credit. See the R Notes below for how to run a bootstrap in R. First, run the code to define the function bootest() that is found in the file, ’Estimation R Code V2.txt.’ Then the following code would create the interval: #enter data# dat <- c(0.43, 0.59, 4.89, 5.29, 5.16, 7.50, 4.48, 6.22) datboot <- bootest(dat, 2000) 1

    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.
