Statistics 100 — Summer Session II 2009 Homework 1 PROBLEM 3, P54-18 (a) (4pts) Histogram of spermatophore spermatophore Frequency 0.05 0.10 0.15 0 5 10 15 Figure 1: Histogram of Measurements (b) (2pts) We use histogram, because the variable is continuous. (c) (2pts) with an outlier (d) (2pts) maximum (in this problem, it is also an outlier) PROBLEM 4, P57-25 (a) (2pts) show the percentage year by year (b) (3pts) It is not easy for us to get an idea about the trend of the percentage directly. (c) (5pts) Use a line graph: powerful tool for displaying trends in time or some other ordered series. 1
