Given the following table Step 1: Plot, and calculate M, variance, SD, a) Observe the scores of both x and y, does it look that there is high variability? Low variability. Is there more variability in x or y (on face value) not loads of variability, but more in x as compared to y b) Sketch a scatterplot of x and y, do you observe a likely positive or negative correlation? 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 positive c) Calculation the M, variance, and SD of both x and y Remember, variance = s 2 , so you find the mean, and take each individual value, and subtract the mean from this value (column XA and YA), then square each new value (columns XB and YB), sum these values, and fill in column SSx, and SSy, these are you sums of squares d) Divide your Sums of Squares by n-1 (this is a sample, after all) e) You have your variance (s 2 ) f) Calculation your standard deviations (sqrrt your variance), interpret them, are they consistent with what you thought they would be at face value?

    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.
