STA 2023 Summer A 2011 Quiz 1 Study Guide Material: Chapters 1-3. Only the material that was covered in class is relevant to the quiz. If something in your notes is unclear, use the book as a supplement to the notes. Equations (or things to calculate): Mean: g G g ± G ±²g . Memorize and be able to use. Variance / standard deviation: You do not need to memorize these formulas, but you should have a general understanding of how they are calculated. Also, you should be able to calculate these with your calculator. Placement of the median: G³g ´ You should memorize this and be able to apply it. This formula can be generalized to find the location of the pth percentile as ( G + 1) ∗ ± . IQR: Q3 – Q1. Memorize and be able to use.
