Weight loss in lbs is nominal level of measurement. A statistical technique was used. The sample set was given to me by my professor Dr. Bao. Frequency distribution table Class Frequency 6-7 6 8-9 7 10-11 9 12-13 6 14-15 2 Frequency Histogram Probability distribution table Class Frequency P(x) 6-7 6 .2 8-9 7 .23 10-11 9 .3 12-13 6 .2 14-15 2 .07 The above probability follows the range of probabilities rule. The probability of an event E is between 0 and 1, inclusive. 0.2+0.23+0.3+0.2+0.07=1. (Larson and Farber 139) The mean of all individual entries are 9.9. The mode is 11. The median is 10. The variance is 5.4. The standard deviation is 2.33. Mean, variance, standard deviation using the frequency distribution table x P(x) xP(x) ( x - u ) (x-u)² P(x)(x-u)² 1 .2 1(.2)=.2 -1.71 2.92 .584 2 .23 2(.23)=.46 -.71 .50 .115 3 .3 3(.3)=.9 .29 .08 .024 4 .2 4(.2)=.8 1.29 1.66 .332
