Each question is worth ½ point. Name: _________________________________ Person number: _________________________________ Note: It is possible that you may not be able to compute some answers because of insufficient information. If so, simply indicate “insufficient information” in the space provided for the answer. 1. Consult the following table: X f 11 200 9 115 8 92 1 80 For these data, M = __________. = 4051 / 487 = 8.32 2. Consult the following table: X f 30-34 85 25-29 123 20-24 154 15-19 75 For this distribution, X = __________. 1

Unformatted text preview: X = N = 500 (425) = 212,500 New = (212,500 100) / 499 = 425.65 4. Base on the following graph: What is the range? _______________ 9 1 + 1 = 9 What is the median? _______________ 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 7 , 7, 8, 8, 8, 8, 9, 9, Median position = (16 + 1) / 2 = 8.5 Median = (3 + 7) / 2 = 5 5. In a population with a mean of = 4.05, a score of X = -1.50 would have a deviation score of __________. X = 1.50 4.05 = 5.55 2 6. A population has SS = 36 and = 3. How many scores are in the population? ____________ N = 36 / 3 2 = 4 7. A sample of n = 7 scores has SS = 42. What is the standard deviation for the sample? ____________ SD = (42 / (7-1)) = 7 = 2.65 8. What is the variance for the following population of scores? ____________ Scores: 75, 75, 72, 76, 77, 76, 74 3...
