The following are the grade point averages of 30 students recently admitted to the gradu- ate program in the Department of Industrial Engineering and Operations Research at the University of California at Berkeley. 3 . 46 , 3 . 72 , 3 . 95 , 3 . 55 , 3 . 62 , 3 . 80 , 3 . 86 , 3 . 71 , 3 . 56 , 3 . 49 , 3 . 96 , 3 . 90 , 3 . 70 , 3 . 61 , 3 . 72 , 3 . 65 , 3 . 48 , 3 . 87 , 3 . 82 , 3 . 91 , 3 . 69 , 3 . 67 , 3 . 72 , 3 . 66 , 3 . 79 , 3 . 75 , 3 . 93 , 3 . 74 , 3 . 50 , 3 . 83 (a) Represent the preceding data in a stem and leaf plot. (b) Calculate the sample mean x ( n ). (c) Calculate the sample standard deviation s ( n ). (d) Determine the proportion of the data values that lies within x ( n ) 1 . 5 s ( n ) and compare with the lower bound given by Chebyshevs inequality. Solution: (a) Omitted (b) x ( n ) = 3 . 721 (c) S x ( n ) = 0 . 1457 (d) Chebyshevs inequality says that | S 1 . 5 | n = S 1 . 5 30 5 9 , i.e., | S 1 . 5 | 17. By simply counting, we have | S 1 . 5 | = 24, which satisfies the inequality....
