Problem 3.7: The age values: 13, 15, 16, 16, 19, 20, 20, 21, 22, 22, 25, 25, 25, 25, 30, 33, 33, 35, 35, 35, 35, 36, 40, 45, 46, 52, 70. (a) Plot an equiwidth histogram of width 10. 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0-10 11-20 21-30 31-40 41-50 51-60 61-70 (b) Give example of stratified sampling. Solution: Sample size =5. Strata’s to divide: young, middle-age and senior. Let’s consider peoples with age: <30: young >30 and <60: middle-aged >60: senior Total number of: Youngs: 15 Middle-aged: 11 Senior: 1 Total: 27 Sample size is 5, i.e. 5/27 *100= 18.5% of total. Number of youngs in new sample= (15 * 18.5)/100 =   2.8 ≈   3 Number of middle-aged in new sample= (11 * 18.5)/100 = 2.03 ≈   2 Number of seniors in new sample= (1 * 18.5)/100 =   0.18 ≈   0 13 Young 15 Young 16 Young 16 Young 19 Young 20 Young 20 Young 21 Young 22 Young 22 Young 25 Young 25 Young 25 Young 25 Young 30 Young 33 Middle-age 33 Middle-age 35 Middle-age 35 Middle-age 35 Middle-age 35 Middle-age 36 Middle-age 40 Middle-age 45 Middle-age 46 Middle-age 52 Middle-age 70 Senior Young Young Young Middle-aged Middle-aged New Sample of size 5.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
