Question 1: At the PISA Web site (www.pisa.oecd.org), there are summary statistics for math scores of 15-year-old males and females for various countries separately. The mean math scores for males, the mean math scores for females, and also the di erence of the two
means are listed in the Excel le.

a. Use any software and obtain the histogram for the mean math scores for males.

b. How would you describe the overall shape of this data set? Do you suspect any outlying group in this data set?

c. Report the 5-number summaries for the di erence of the two means. (Note: Don't use software. Use the method discussed in class).

d. Obtain the back-to-back stemplot and compare the distribution of the mean mathscores for males and for females.

e. Use any software and report the sample mean and sample standard deviation for the mean math scores for females.

f. Based on the given data, what proportion of the mean math scores for females falls within 2 standard deviation of the mean?

Question 2: It is well-known that the relationship between degree Fahrenheit (F) and degree Celsius (C) is

F = 9 5 C + 32

We randomly selected 100 days in October from 2010-2014 and recorded the temperature (in degree Fahrenheit) of New York City. We have the following summary statistics from R:

Min. 1st Qu. Median Mean 3rd Qu. Max. std dev
66.00 73.00 76.50 76.55 79.00 92.00 5.015884
Report the summary statistics in degree Celsisus.

Question 3: The amount of sodium is recorded for each of the 200 randomly selected 9-ounce serving of chicken noodle soup which yields a mean of 1100 mg and a standard deviation of 150 mg. Moreover, the data distribution looks approximately bell-shaped.

a. Approximatelhy, what proportion of soups have amount of sodium is less than 950 mg?

b. Approximatelhy, what proportion of soups have amount of sodium is between 800 mg and 1550 mg?

c. An expert said that when the amount of sodium is 6 standard deviation higher than the mean, it is then considered to be dangerous. In this case, what amount (in mg) is considered to be dangerous?

Question 4: Consider the follow split stem-and-leaf plot of 52 data points: Leaf unit = 0.1

R gives the following summary statistic:

Min. 1st Qu. Median Mean 3rd Qu. Max.

1.100 3.375 4.000 4.060 4.725 8.900

Also the sample variance is reported to be 2.1570.

a. What percentage of data falls below 3.0?

b. Based on the R output, identify all outliers and extreme outliers?

c. Is Empirical Rule applicable here? Why or why not?

d. What do the Empirical Rule and Chebyshev Rule said about the percentage of data fall within 2 standard deviation of the mean? How about the actual percentage of data fall within that range?

e. Find the z-score for the largest and smallest data points.

Question 5: Many people grab a granola bar for breakfast or for a snack to make it through the afternoon slump at work. For the Kashi GoLean Crisp Chocolate Caramel 45 grams bar, the company claimed that the mean amount of protein in each bar is 9 grams with
a standard deviation of 1.5 gram. Suppose the distribution of protein in a bar is normally distributed.

a. What is the probability that the amount of protein is less than 7.75 grams?

b. What is the probability that the amount of protein is between 7.8 and 8.2 grams?

c. Suppose the amount of protein is at least 8.1 grams. What is the probability that it is more than 8.3 grams?

d. What is the amount of protein that is exceeded by 2.5% of all the bars?

a. Obtain a bar chart using relative frequency on the vertical axis.

b. Obtain a pie chart for this data set.

c. Do you think the York University should try to acquire more books in one particular subject area? Why or why not?

Question 7: Three of the following students will form the Executive Committee for the York University Students Council:

Annie Charles Darwin Ellen Ginny Justin Kerri Mandy Steve Zach

It was decided that the following random digits will be used to help to choose the committee.
