Quiz 2 Key MA 223 1. Here’s some sampled data: {1,9,2,9,4,5,8}. (a) (2 points) The sum of the data is 38 and there are 7 points, so the mean is 38/7. My bad, I meant it to be an integer! (b) (2 points) The sample variance is 2760 1 ((312 + 252 + 242 + 252 + 102 + 32 + 182 )/72 = . 6 7 √ The standard deviation is 2760/7. (c) (3 points) Sort the data and obtain {1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 9, 9}. The median is 5. The bottom half of the data (including the median) is 1, 2, 4, 5 with median 3, so that’s the first quartile. The top half is 5, 8, 9, 9 with median 8.5, so that’s the third quartile. (d) (3 points) The boxplot should have a box going from 3 to 8.5 with a line at the median 5. The whiskers should go out to 1 and 9. 1
