Functions and Visualizations Welcome to lab 4! This week, we'll learn about functions and the table method apply from Section 8.1 . We'll also learn about visualization from Chapter 7 . First, set up the tests and imports by running the cell below. In [1]: import numpy as np from datascience import * # These lines set up graphing capabilities. import matplotlib %matplotlib inline import matplotlib.pyplot as plt plt.style.use('fivethirtyeight') import warnings warnings.simplefilter('ignore', FutureWarning) from ipywidgets import interact, interactive, fixed, interact_manual import ipywidgets as widgets from client.api.notebook import Notebook ok = Notebook('lab04.ok') ===================================================================== Assignment: Functions and Visualizations OK, version v1.13.11 ===================================================================== 1. Functions and CEO IncomesLet's start with a real data analysis task. We'll look at the 2015 compensation of CEOs at the 100 largest companies in California. The data were compiled for a Los Angeles Times analysis here, and ultimately came from filings mandated by the SEC from all publicly-traded companies. Two companies have two CEOs, so there are 102 CEOs in the dataset.We've copied the data in raw form from the LA Times page into a file called raw_compensation.csv(The page notes that all dollar amounts are in millions of dollars.)In [2]:raw_compensation = Table.read_table('raw_compensation.csv')raw_compensationOut[2]: .

We want to compute the average of the CEOs' pay. Try running the cell below.

Let's examine why this error occured by looking at the values in the "Total Pay" column. Use the type function and set total_pay_type to the type of the first value in the "Total Pay" column.
