Data on 12 large US cities include population (in thousands) and open space (acres of park and undeveloped space). For each city the ratio of open space to population (acres per 1000 people) was computed.

IQR = Q3 – Q1 = 9.30 – 6.23 = 3.07 c) Which, if any values are outliers more than 1.5*IQR above Q 3 or more than 1.5*IQR below Q 1 ? lower outlier screen: Q1 – 1.5*IQR = 6.23 – 4.605 = 1.63 - no low outliers upper outlier screen: Q3 + 1.5*IQR = 9.30 + 4.605 = 13.9 – one high outlier: 14.87 d) Find the largest and smallest z-values (standardized values) in the data. d) Find the largest and smallest z-values (standardized values) in the data....
