of the data. Assume that there are no outliers in the given data and use the Normal Quantile Plot  to make your conclusions. To create a Normal Quantile Plot, use PART 2 Manual Construction  of Normal Quantile Plots (page 277-278) procedure. Then use EXCEL to generate the scatterplot for the NORMAL QUANTILE PLOT. EARTHQUAKE DEPTHS. Tom randomly collected a sample of depths (km) of  earthquakes: 7.1, 6.9, 7.5, 10.0, 8.1, 6.8 a) Complete the following table with the computation results using PART 2 Manual  Construction of the Normal Quantile Plot of the earthquake depths.

    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.
