Part A: Answer the following questions (1-10)

  1. What are the measures of central tendency?

 

 

  1. What are the characteristics of mean, median, and mode?

  1. As discussed in the class live, what are 3 ways of calculating R2?

 

 

 

  1. Suppose the classes for an organized set of data are as follows: please fill in the A column and answer the B question.

Class

A.

B.

Mid-Point

What is the value of class width?

0.235 – 0.875

 

 

0.875 – 1.515

 

 

1.515 – 2.155

 

 

 
  1. Into which class is the value 14.6 assigned? (Circle your answer)

Class

a.

11.2 – 12.9

b.

12.9 – 14.6

c.

14.6 – 16.3

 
  1. What is the standard deviation for these data: 3.784, 3.784, and 3.784

 

Part B: True or False (11-30)

______11. The random sample is the most important, because statistical theory applies to it alone.

______12. In a frequency distribution, the class mark is the number of observations that fall within that class.

______13. Original class interval frequencies can be obtained by multiplying the respective relative frequencies by the total number of observations.

______14. The sum of the class frequencies is equal to the number of observations made.

______15. Planning is the most important step in statistical studies.

______16. Systematic, stratified and cluster sampling are not approximations to simple random sampling.

______17. A relative frequency distribution describes the proportion of data values that fall within each category.

______18. There would be no need for statistical theory if census, rather than a sample was always used to obtain information about populations.

______19.  is

______20. The median always exists in a set of numerical data.

______21.  means that A and B are mutually exclusive events.

______22.Mutually exclusive events imply that if one event occurs, the other cannot occur. An event (e.g., ) and its complement are always mutually exclusive.

______23.

______24.When events are not mutually exclusive, the rule is: 

______25. Rule of addition when event are mutually exclusives: 

______26.  is not

______27. Events are independent when the occurrence of one event has no effect on the probability that another will occur.

______28.The P(x) is always 0 ≤ P(x) ≤ 1.

______29. The mean of the discrete probability distribution for a discrete random variable is called its expected value.

______30. A random variable is a variable that can take different values according to the outcome of an experiment, and it can be either discrete or continuous.
