Homework #5 Question 1 Does it appear as though the machines are operating similarly in terms of the mean thickness and the variation of this thickness? Describe the differences you see. Sheet Press-1 Press-2 Press-3 1 0.1994 0.1966 0.1735 2 0.1644 0.1934 0.1787 3 0.2160 0.1955 0.1844 4 0.1883 0.1946 0.1835 5 0.2167 0.1958 0.1793 16 0.2241 0.1999 0.2060 17 0.1960 0.1951 0.2104 18 0.1953 0.2019 0.1959 19 0.1802 0.2004 0.2095 20 0.1881 0.2078 0.2102 21 0.1834 0.1872 0.2067 22 0.2014 0.2092 0.2138 23 0.1989 0.1880 0.2176 24 0.1928 0.1895 0.2205 25 0.1698 0.2002 0.2304 Mean 0.1937 0.1973 0.1998 Standard Deviation 0.0157 0.0078 0.0144 Looking at the mean and SD of the thickness of sheets that each press, it seems as though the means are similar, for the most part, and the standard deviations are not too far apart from each mean. The key differences that I notice are that the standard deviation for Press 1 is higher than the other SD’s and the mean of Press-3 is slightly higher than the other means. Question 2

    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.
