Which statistic(s) is sensitive to outliers (extreme values)? a) mean b) std dev c) median d) IQR e) range 3. Which of the following integrals would be used for finding the expected value of the random variable Y? ∫ ∫∫ ∫∫ ∫ y x y y x x dy y x xf d dx y x yf c dxdy y x yf b dy y x yf a ) , ( ) ) , ( ) ) , ( ) ) , ( ) 4) If f(x) = 2x and f(y)= 3(y-2), find f(x,y) if X and Y are independent. 5) The thickness of metal plates made by a particular machine is normally distributed with a mean of 4.3mm and a standard deviation
