Project Data: Lengths of 30 random rivers in the world measured in miles

431 800 485

500 800 309

926 790 618

383 375 605

425 380 531

538 434 300

540 800 420

301 659 865

360 512 424

338 430 652

1. (10 points) Construct a grouped frequency distribution for the sample data. Use 6 classes. Use the minimum data value as the lower limit of the first class.

Class  Class                    Relative

Frequency            Cumulative Frequency

Limits Boundaries        Frequency

2. (3 points) Draw a histogram for the data set. Title the graph and label the axes appropriately.

3. (2 points) Does the distribution appear to be normal (yes or no)? Explain.

4. (10 points) Find the following descriptive statistics for the sample data.

Mean Median Mode(s)

Range Standard Deviation

5. (3 points) Find the quartiles for the data.

Q1 = _______________

Q2 = _______________

Q3 = _______________

6. (2 points) Sketch a box plot. Do your best to draw it to scale.

7. (2 point) What is the IQR for this data set? ____________

8. (3 points) Outlier identification

Any value in this data set that is less than ________ or greater than _______ is to be considered an outlier.

Therefore, the following values in this data set are outliers (write “none” if there are no outliers):

9. (3 points) Construct a 95% confidence interval for the population’s mean.

____________ < μ < ____________

10. (2 points) If someone were to ask you what this particular confidence interval means, what would you say?

11. (10 points) Test the hypothesis that the population’s mean is different from the sample’s median value. Use the traditional method. Use α = 0.05.

Alternative hypothesis (H1): ________________

Null hypothesis (H0): _____________________

Critical value: ____________

Test statistic: ____________

Conclusion:

Do you reject the null hypothesis (yes or no)? _________

If someone were to ask what the conclusion means in this particular study, what would you say?
