What happens when these assumptions
are violated?

Samples must be representative of the population to be
able to draw valid statistical inferences
What can go wrong with a
sample?
Selection Bias: the selection of the sample is biased in
some way
Non-response Bias: a certain segment

Can you explain the formula for finding a
percentile? Where does the z score come in?
How will the normal curve be affected if the
standard deviation in the z-score is higher than
the actual mean? How wil this af

1.If in a distribution of data the mean is GREATER than the median, then typically the
distribution will be:
A) Skewed to the right
B) Skewed to the left
C) Symmetric
