All questions are worth 3 points. (Since there are only 30 questions, I’m giving a 10 point gift for Christmas.) 1. Which of the following are measures of variability (or dispersion)? A. sample median B. sample mean C. sample standard deviation D. All of the above E. None of the above 2. Suppose that a local school has 2 power generators. Assume that each generator operates independently with a probability of failure equal to 0.02 on any given week when used. The school will experience a complete power outage only if both generators fail. What is the probability of a complete power outage during a certain week? A. 0.04 B. 0.0004 C. 0.02 D. 0.96 E. None of the above 3. Let Y be a random variable with probability density function f ( y )= y 3 +1 6 , 0 <y< 2 = 0 otherwise Find the expected value of Y . (Reduce answer to simplest form.)

What follows is a description of an experiment and the Matlab results. Use this information for the next 6 problems. In a chemistry lab, an experiment was performed to study the thermal degradation of a certain biopolymer. Samples were heated to a certain temperature (70 or 100 degrees Celsius). This temperature was maintained for a ﬁxed time duration (10 or 30 minutes). The molecular weight of the biopolymer was used as the response.
