Date: 3."'18."'10 Book: T1‘iola: Elementary Statistics. 11e Time: 11:30 AM Listed below are the durations (in hours) of a simple random sample of all ﬂights of a space shuttle program. Find the
range, variance, and standard deviation for the sample data. Is the lowest duration time unusual? Why or why not? 94 104 218 125 172 220 199 368 255 252 373 358 218 263 0
First, ﬁnd the range of the sample. The range ofa set of data values is the difference between the maximum data value and the minimum data value. _ (maximum data value)  (minimum data
range —
value) = (373 —0)
= 313 Therefore, the range of the sample is 373 hours. The variance, 52, ot‘a sample is found by using the formula below, where x is the variable used to represent the
individual data values, x is the mean of the sample, and n is the size ofthe sample. ,= Est—if 111 5 The mean, ;, of a sample is found with the formula below, where x is the variable used to represent the individual data
values, and n is the number of data values in the sample. 2 x (— sum of all data values x =

Date: 3."'18."'10 Book: Triola: Elementary Statistics. 11c Time: 11:30 AM Notice that the standard deviation is the square root of the variance. Since the variance has already been calculated, take
its square root. 5 = t} 10,960.06? 104.690 Therefore, the standard deviation is approximately 104.690 hours. A data value is considered unusual if it is more than 2 standard deviations away from the mean.
Since 5 = 104.690, calculate 25, rounding to three decimal places. Two standard deviations is equal to 209.380. Therefore, if a value is more than 209.380 hours away from the mean, it is considered to be unusual. Page 3 ...
