1. What is the scale of measurement for the variable “depth of a lake?” 2. Do cumulative frequencies make sense with every scale of measurement? Please explain. 3. Does a large median imply large range? Does a large range imply a large median? Please explain. 4. Here is part of a histogram. The vertical scale is a density scale (percent-per-unit/relative- frequency-per-unit) What proportion of the graph is found between 60 and 76? [Keep the majority of the blank space empty for the answer to question 8]. 5. Which is more affected by extreme scores, the second central moment or the third central moment? Explain in the space above. 6. Estimate the standard deviation for the below distribution. 7. Depending on how you define error, the mean, the median, or the mode can be the best guess. How is error defined if the median is the best guess? Use the empty space above this question for your answer. 8. Calculate the second moment around the origin for the data 1, 3, 3, 9. Note: The question is asking about the moment about the origin not the moment about the mean.

    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.
