2.

Determine the mean temperature.

(3 pts)

3.

Determine the mode(s), if any.

  1. Obtain the five-number summary for the given data.

 

The ordered series needed to obtain the five-number summary is given below.

Minimum = 52

 

First Quartile = Mean of the 3rd and the 4th terms = (53 + 55)/2 = 54.5

 

Median = Mean of the two middle terms = (62 + 65)/2 = 127/2 = 63.5

 

Third quartile = Mean of the 9th and the 10th terms = (66 + 70)/2 = 68

 

Maximum = 75

 

 

 

 

 

  1. The mean temperature is,

 

.

 

 

  1. The mode(s) is (are) the highest frequent observation(s) in the given data. In the given data two observations 52 and 65 are repeated twice and the remaining are appeared only once.

 

Therefore, the required modes are 52 and 65.

 

 

 

Refer to the following frequency distribution for Questions 4, 5, 6, and 7. Show all work. Just the answer, without supporting work, will receive no credit.

5.

Calculate the mean of this frequency distribution.

(5 pts)

6.          Calculate the standard deviation of this frequency distribution.                              (10 pts)

7.          Assume that the smallest observation in this dataset is 1.2 minutes. Suppose this observation were incorrectly recorded as 0.12 instead of 1.2. Will the mean increase, decrease, or remain the same? Will the median increase, decrease or remain the same? Explain your answers.                                   (5 pts)

  1. The mean decreases as the observation recorded incorrectly decreases the sum of the observations. The median remains the same as it is a measure of location not influenced much by the change in extreme observations.

 

 

 

Refer to the following information for Questions 8 and 9. Show all work. Just the answer, without supporting work, will receive no credit.

 

A 6-faced die is rolled two times. Let A be the event that the outcome of the first roll is greater than 4. Let B be the event that the outcome of second roll is an odd number.

 

8.          What is the probability that the outcome of the second roll is an odd number, given that the first roll is greater than 4?                                                                                                              (10 pts)
