We use the sample median, 7 . 7 ~ = x (the middle observation when arranged in ascending order). c. We use the sample standard deviation, ( 29 660 . 1 26 94 . 1860 27 8 . 219 2 2 =- = = s s d. With success = observation greater than 10, x = # of successes = 4, and 1481 . 27 4 = = = n x p e. We use the sample (std dev)/(mean), or 2039 . 1407 . 8 660 . 1 = = x s 2. a.

Here, X = # in sample without TI graphing calculator, and x = 16, so 80 . 20 16 = = p Chapter 6: Point Estimation 206 3. a. We use the sample mean, 3481 . 1 = x b. Because we assume normality, the mean = median, so we also use the sample mean 3481 . 1 = x . We could also easily use the sample median. c.
