MINITAB Assignment 3 Comments
First, please make sure you do #1.
All that you do is copy and paste the comments that resulted when
you opened the worksheet for MINITAB 3.
Problems 2 and 3 are two entirely different problems.
That is, the data that you opened in MINITAB is
only
used for problem 3.
Problem 2 is a stand alone problem (data is given within the problem).
Problem 2 is using the zscore to compare values that came from two different distributions.
One
distribution is weights of men between the ages of 20 29 years and the other distribution is of women
weights between the ages of 2029 years.
You will calculate the z score* for the weight of a particular women and you will calculate the z score for
the weight for a particular man and compare.
