hw06 - Jupyter NotebookIn [92]:If we were studying all human-detectable 2019 earthquakes and had access to the above data,we’d be in good shape - however, if the USGS didn’t publish the full data, we could still learnsomething about earthquakes from just a smaller subsample. If we gathered our sample correctly,we could use that subsample to get an idea about the distribution of magnitudes (above 5, ofcourse) throughout the year!In the following lines of code, we take two different samples from the earthquake table, andcalculate the mean of the magnitudes of these earthquakes.In [93]:Question 1.Are these samples representative of the population of earthquakes in the original table(that is, the should we expect the mean to be close to the population mean)?Hint:Consider the ordering of theearthquakestable.Out[92]:timemagplace2019-12-31T11:22:49.734Z5245km S of L'Esperance Rock, New Zealand2019-12-30T17:49:59.468Z537km NNW of Idgah, Pakistan2019-12-30T17:18:57.350Z5.534km NW of Idgah, Pakistan2019-12-30T13:49:45.227Z5.433km NE of Bandar 'Abbas, Iran2019-12-30T04:11:09.987Z5.2103km NE of Chichi-shima, Japan2019-12-29T18:24:41.656Z5.2Southwest of Africa2019-12-29T13:59:02.410Z5.1138km SSW of Kokopo, Papua New Guinea2019-12-29T09:12:15.010Z5.279km S of Sarangani, Philippines2019-12-29T01:06:00.130Z59km S of Indios, Puerto Rico2019-12-28T22:49:15.959Z5.2128km SSE of Raoul Island, New Zealand...
