Quiz 10. April 20, 2011 Seat # _________ Name: ___ < KEY > ___ Closed book and notes. No calculator. Recall: X d = Σ i = 1 n X i / n Recall: S 2 = [ Σ i = 1 n X i 2 nX d 2 ] / ( n 1) Consider a sample containing the data 14.2, 30.4, 8.1, 34.5, 8.7, 5.5. 1. (2 points) Determine the sample size. ____________________________________________________________ n = 6 ____________________________________________________________ 2. (2 points) Determine the value of the median. ____________________________________________________________ The order statistics are x (1) = 5.5, x (2) = 8.1, x (3) = 8.7, x (4) = 14.2, x (5) = 30.4, x (6) = 34.5. The two center values are x (3) and x (4) . Therefore the sample median is [ x (3) + x (4) ] / 2 = (8.7 + 14.2) / 2 = 11.45 ____________________________________________________________ 3. (2 point) Determine the value of the first order statistic. ____________________________________________________________ x (1) = 5.5 ____________________________________________________________ 4. (2 point) Determine the value of the sample mean. (No need to simplify.)
