Stat 231 Chapter 4 2. a) A Poisson distribution is a likely probability distribution, since the data involves counts of eggs. b) For data with a Poisson distribution the square root transformation is often a good variance stabilizing transformation. c) The slope of the LOG(SD) vs. LOG(mean) plot is 0.57813 m = , indicating that 1-m is approximately 1/2. This agrees with the value in part (b). [The Fmax HOV test is significant at the .05 level, although the BF HOV test has a p- value just above 0.05. Also, the QQ plot shows a heavy right tail for the distribution of the residuals.] d) After the square root transformation [x_eggs=SQRT(eggs)] the Fmax HOV test is no longer significant and the BF HOV test is highly non-significant. The QQ plot of the residuals also looks better.

### What students are saying

• 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.
