Interval of heights 63.5 inches to 67.5 inches 1.5 a. 1/(sqrt(n))=.05 n=400 b. 1/(sqrt(n))=.30 n=(1/.3)^2 or 100/9 1.7 a. Randomized b. Observational c. Randomized d. Observational 1.15 a. The fastest speed driven was 150mph by a male b. The slowest speed driven by a male was 55mph c. The 3rd quartile is 95mph therefore the speed is 95 because 1/4 of the females drove that speed or higher d. Because 89mph is the median, 1/2 of the women drove at that speed or higher e. Once again 89mph is the median therefore you take the total amount of females surveyed (102) and divide by 2. 51 females have drove 89mph or faster 2.5 a.
