“an: Signature: Instructions: Final Exam Dec. 16, 2002 You should have 12 pages (6 sheets) 11 problems. C1 Write the answers and show the main steps of your work on this test sheet. Your ﬁnal answers must include the appropriate units (eg. dollars, dollars per week, miles per hour, etc.) If you use a table, state the table used:
for example, 1.887 (from Table W). if you use a function on the T183 (or T189) write out the command you entered as well as the result: ‘ for example, 0.0668 (normalcdf(10,1.5,0,1)). DO NOT WRITE ON THE REST OF THIS COVER SHEET!

period and decides to curve the scores using the linear transformation

sample is T = 104.3. We denote the mean of the scores of all students at his
