data. ( B ) As seen from the graph, the symmetrical distributions exist from groups: A, D, E because the box has a line dividing two equal parts. ( C ) “A distribution that is skewed right is also known as positively skewed (Dr. Rebecca Fang).” Going off this information, group B is positively skewed because the median is closer to the first quartile (Q 1 ) than the third quartile (Q 3 ). ( D ) “A distribution that is skewed left is also known as negatively skewed (Dr. Rebecca Fang).” Going off this information, group C is negatively skewed because the median is closer to the third quartile (Q 3 ) than the first quartile (Q 1 ). ( E ) As seen from the graph, group D has the largest value for the upper quartile (Q 3 ). ( F ) Group E has the smallest value for the median ; the middle line inside of the box is Touching the lowest value on the measurement axis and therefore this group has the smallest median. ( G ) Group C has the most extreme observations ; as seen from the graph, two points lie outside the box and therefore contains the most extreme observations. [ END OF ASSIGNMENT 2 ] Page 3

    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.
