MATH 302 Quiz 1 – Question and Answers

Part 1 of 3

1. What type of sampling is being employed if the population is divided into economic classes and a sample is chosen from each economic class to be surveyed?
2. Which of the following statistics is not a measure of central location?
3. Gender and State are examples of which type of data?
4. The amount of time needed to run the Boston marathon is an example of which type of variable?
5. The mode is best described as the
6. Given the following boxplot where m is the median value, what statement could be made about the distribution of the data?
7. The median can also be described as:
8. Suppose that a histogram of a data set is approximately symmetric and “bell shaped”. Approximately what percent of the observations are within two standard deviations of the mean?
9. Suppose that a histogram of a data set is approximately symmetric and “bell shaped”. Approximately what percent of the observations are within one standard deviation of the mean?
10. Since the population is always larger than the sample, the population mean:
11. A population includes:
12. Find the z-score for each student and indicate which one has a better relative position. An Art Major earned a grade of 46 on an exam with  = 50 and s = 5; A Theater Major earned a grade of 70 on an exam with  = 75 and s = 7.

1. Accepted characters: numbers, decimal point markers (period or comma), sign indicators (-), spaces (e.g., as thousands separator, 5 000), “E” or “e” (used in scientific notation). NOTE: For scientific notation, a period MUST be used as the decimal point marker. Complex numbers should be in the form (a + bi) where “a” and “b” need to have explicitly stated values. For example: {1+1i} is valid whereas {1+i} is not. {0+9i} is valid whereas {9i} is not. The following data represent the number of children in a sample of 10 families from Chicago: 4, 2, 1, 1, 5, 3, 0, 1, 0, and 2. Compute the mean number of children. Place your answer, rounded to two decimal places, in the blank. For example, 3.45 would be a legitimate entry. 1.70

For example: {1+1i} is valid whereas {1+i} is not. {0+9i} is valid whereas {9i} is not. The histogram below represents scores achieved by 250 job applicants on a personality profile. What percentage of the job applicants scored between 30 and 40?  Place your answer in the blank, rounded to 2 decimal places. Do not use a percentage sign (%). For example, 44.44 would be a legitimate answer.

For example: {1+1i} is valid whereas {1+i} is not. {0+9i} is valid whereas {9i} is not. A statistics professor has just given a final examination in his statistical inference course. He is particularly interested in learning how his class of 40 students performed on this exam. The scores are shown below.

How many job applicants scored above 50? Place your answer in the blank. Do not use any stray symbols. For example, 123 would be a legitimate answer.
