1) Since 1900, the magnitude of earthquakes that measure 0.1 or higher on the Richter Scale in California is approximately normal with a mean of 6.2 and standard deviation of 0.5, according to the data obtained from the U. S. Geological Survey. a) What is the probability that a randomly selected earthquake in California has a magnitude of 6.0 or higher? b) What is the probability that a sample of 35 earthquakes over a certain period of time has an average magnitude between 5.8 and 7.1? 2) In the Spacelab Life Sciences 2 payload, 14 male rats were sent to space. Upon their return, the red blood cell mass (in milliliters) of the rats was determined. A control group of 14 male rats was held under the same conditions (except for space flight) as the space rates and their red blood cell mass was also determined. The projected resulted in the following data. Flight Group Control Group 8.59, 8.64, 7.43, 7.21, 6.87, 7.89, 9.79, 6.85, 7.00, 8.80, 9.30, 8.03, 6.39, 7.54 8.65, 6.99, 8.40, 9.66, 7.62, 7.44, 8.55, 8.70, 7.33, 8.58, 9.88, 9.94, 7.14, 9.14 a) Find the sample mean for the flight group. 7.880714 b) Find the sample median for the flight group. 7.715 c) Find the sample standard deviation for the flight group. 1.017451 d) Create a box plot for each of the groups.

### 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.
