Mark Hansen, Fall 2009 CE93 Homework 2 – Solution 1. Sample median and mean values. > median(x), mean(x), median(y), mean(y) Data Median Mean Density 2445 2444.9 Strength 60.10 60.14 These measures fall in the central regions of the corresponding normalized frequency diagrams as shown in the following figures. Mean=median=2445 mean=median=60.1 2.

The strength data has higher dispersion since it has a larger sample c.o.v.
