Stat 4714 Fall 2010 HW 8 Descriptive Statistics Due Friday October 15 th at 1:15pm (1) The file hw7_volt.jmp contains 6 observations from 5 different sites regarding threshold voltage (in volts.) Use JMP to do parts a and b. Note: See instructions on scholar in JMP folder. (a) Find the mean and standard deviation for each site.

(d) Use your output for (a) and (b) to identify similarities/differences among the 5 sites. (2) Suppose we have a sample mean of 25 mm and a standard deviation of 2 mm for a sample of 10 measurements. We discovered that the instrumentation was off by 1mm.
