What are the names of the columns of this data frame. ii. What is the median stopping distance? iii. What is the maximum speed? (b) Use the dim() function to determine the number of observations in the data frame. (c) What is the speed and stopping distance of the 17th car listed in the data frame? (d) Plot a histogram of the speeds. What kind of distribution would be a reasonable model for this set of data? (e) Plot a boxplot of the stopping distances. Are there any outliers?

### 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.
