6. a. Sample Values Sum Mean 1 2,2 4 2 2 2,4 6 3 3 2,4 6 3 4 2,8 10 5 5 2,4 6 3 6 2,4 6 3 7 2,8 10 5 8 4,4 8 4 9 4,8 12 6 10 4,8 12 6 b. μ =(2 + 2 + 4 + 4 + 8)/5 = 4 c. They are equal. The dispersion for the population is greater than that for the sample means. The population varies from 2 to 8, whereas the sample means only vary from 2 to 6. 7. a. Sample Values Sum Mean 1 12,12,14 38 12.66 2 12,12,15 39 13.0 3 12,12,20 44 14.66 4 14,15,20 49 16.33 5 12,14,15 41 13.66 6 12,14,15 41 13.66 7 12,15,20 47 15.66 8 12,15,20 47 15.66 9 12,14,20 46 15.33 10 12,14,20 46 15.33 b. =(12 +12 + 14 + 15 + 20)/5 = 14.6 c. The dispersion of the population is greater than that of the sample means. the sample means vary from 12.66 to 16.33 where as the population varies from 12 to 20.
