A sample of 25 households produced the following measurements on x , the number of DVRs in the household: Is the distribution of x , the number of DVRs in a househould, symmetric or skewed? Explain. Guess the value of the mode, the value of x , that occurs most frequently. Draw a relative frequency histogram for the data set. Locate the mean, median, and mode along the horizonal axis.

Solutions a. mean (=AVERAGE) 215 b. median (=MEDIAN) 213 c. An article in Consumer Reports gives the price - an estimated average for a 6-ounce can or a 7.06-ounce pouch - for 14 different brands of water-packed light tuna, based on prices paid nationally in supermarkets: Find the average price for the 14 different brands of tuna. Find the median price for the 14 different brands of tuna. Based on your findings in parts a and b, do you think the distribution of prices is skewed? Explain. Since the mean and median are not close, the distribution is skewed. In a psychological experiment, the time on task was recorded for 10 subjects under a 5-minute time contraint. These measurements are in seconds If you were writing a report to describe these data, which measure of central tendency would you use? Explain. Since the mean and median are so close, either would work but I would use mean. Histogram

### 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.
