Question

Question 1  The numbers of hours worked (per week) by 400 statistics students are shown below.  The class width for this distribution:

Number of Hours             Frequency

0 - 9                                           20

10 - 19                                      80

20 - 29                                   200

30 - 39                                   100

Question 1 options:

is 9

is 10

is 39, which is: the largest value minus the smallest value or 39 - 0 = 39

Can increase or decrease depending on the data values

Question 18 The difference between a histogram and a bar chart is that:

Question 18 options:

On a histogram, the y-variable is frequency

The x-variable has a different level of measurement

On a bar chart, the columns are adjacent

None of the above

Question 19 This term refers to how data spreads out or disperses within a distribution.

Question 19 options:

Variability

Critical region

Range

Mode

Question 20 Which of the following is not a characteristic of the normal probability distribution?

Question 20 options:

The mean, median, and the mode are equal

The mean of the distribution can be negative, zero, or positive

The distribution is symmetrical

The standard deviation must be 1

Question 21 The Nobb Door Company manufactures doors for recreational vehicles.  It has two conflicting objectives:  It wants to build doors as small as possible to save on material costs, but to preserve its good reputation with the public, it feels obligated to manufacture doors that are tall enough for 95% of the adult population in the U.S. to pass through without stooping.  In order to determine the height at which to manufacture doors, Nobb is willing to assume that the height of adults in America is normally distributed with a mean (µ) of 73 inches and standard deviation (σ) of 6 inches.  How tall should Nobb's doors be?

Question 22 Here are the high temperature readings during June 2011 in Phoenix, AZ (treat these data as a sample):   84, 86, 78, 69, 94, 95, 94, 98, 89, 87, 88, 89, 92, 99, 102, 94, 92, 96, 89, 88, 87, 88, 84, 82, 87, 94, 97, 99, 102, 105.   Find the mean, median, mode, range and standard deviation.

Question 23 A recent study of how Americans spend their leisure time surveyed workers employed more than 5 years.  They determined the probability an employee has 2 weeks of vacation time to be 0.45, 1 week of vacation time to be 0.10, and 3 or more weeks to be 0.20.  Suppose 10 workers are selected at random.  What is the probability that 8 workers have 2 weeks of vacation time?
