Part 3: 1) a) Population includes all members of a defined group that we are studying or collecting information on for data driven decisions. In this case, the total number of different types of hospitals in each state in America is the population. I gathered my 50 ordered pairs of quantitative data from the book about Hospitals and Dispensaries volume 79. b) To get 30 samples from the data, I used the random number table. I picked three digits at a time. If they were between 01 and 353, and appearing for the first time, it fits to be a random sample. From the random table I got: 100 253 135 292 204 240 63 8 229 166 303 232 90 256 15 343 33 190 252 153 311 44 15 147 323 168 217 176 72 120 2) An explanatory variable is a type of independent variable. The number of hospitals is the explanatory variable because under no circumstance is the number of hospitals affected by any another variable (number of beds). I chose it to be the explanatory variable because it predicts the number of beds available. 3) The response variable is the number of beds.

This is because, as the number of hospitals increase in a state so does the number of the beds available.

    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.
