Unformatted text preview: 1. Interval 2. You will not be tested on this. Sorry for putting it on here. 3. No. Large median does not imply large range. Median is simply the middle number of the set of numbers in the observation when put in numerical order from greatest to least. Nor does a large range imply that there is a large median. Outliers do not affect the median. Only the mean is affected; the median is robust. 4. (8 x .02) + (8 x .06)= .64 5. Extreme scores affect the third moment. The third moment is the skew which measures the distribution of the scores. The variance is not affected. 6. Will NOT be given something like this on test. Disregard this question. 7. Based on lecture, when median is the best guess, error is defined to minimize error. Thus, when using the median, you are minimizing or making the least error. 8. (1)^2 + (3)^2 + (3)^2 + (9)^2= 100; 100/4=25. Answer: 25 9. Descriptive merely means describes data (eg mean, standard deviation, etc) whereas inferential makes estimates about populations using samples. 10. There’s no question here. Whoops! 11. Ordinal 12. Ratio 13. Interval 14. Ratio 15. Interval 16. 17. Using numbers to explain. 4 numbers ­ 1,3,3,9. Use the formula to calculate. Avg= 4. (1 ­4) + (3 ­4) + (3 ­4) +(9 ­4)= 0; 0/4=0 Answer: 0. 18. Based on lecture, when mode is used, it is to maximize correctness. Error is thus defined as maximizing correctness when mode is the best guess. ...

### 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.
