7) Use the data in the table to answer the question. The x -values are amounts of saturated fat
(in grams) in various regular two-ounce muffins. The y-values are amounts of saturated
fat (in grams) in various ʺlow fatʺ two-ounce muffins.

Is each x-value matched with a corresponding y-value? That is, is each x-value associated
with the corresponding y-value in some meaningful way? If the x- and y-values are not
matched, does it make sense to use the difference between each x-value and the y-value
that is in the same column?

20th person from the list until a sample of 100 is obtained. They then call these 100 people. Does
this sampling plan result in a random sample? Simple random sample? Explain.
A) No; yes. The sample is not random because not all voters have the same chance of being
selected. The second person on the list has no chance of being selected. It is a simple random
sample because all samples of 100 voters have the same chance of being selected.
B) Yes; no. The sample is random because all voters have the same chance of being selected. It is
not a simple random sample because some samples are not possible, such as a sample
containing the second person on the list.

40) An electronics store receives a shipment of eight boxes of calculators. Each box contains ten
calculators. A quality control inspector chooses a box by putting eight identical slips of paper
numbered 1 to 8 into a hat, mixing thoroughly and then picking a slip at random. He then chooses
a calculator at random from the box selected using a similar method with ten slips of paper in a
hat. He repeats the process until he obtains a sample of 5 calculators for quality control testing.
Does this sampling plan result in a random sample? Simple random sample? Explain.
A) Yes; yes. The sample is random because all calculators have the same chance of being
selected. It is a simple random sample because all samples of 5 calculators have the same

The x-values are not matched with the y-values, so it does not make sense to use the differences between each
x-value and the y-value that is in the same column.
8) Given the context of the data, we could address the issue of whether the two types of muffin provide the same
amounts of saturated fat, or whether there is a difference between the two types of muffin.
9) The x-values are matched with the corresponding y-values. It makes sense to use the difference between each
x-value and the y-value that is in the same column. Both represent weights measured in pounds and both are
associated with the same person. The x-value is the weight of a person before the diet and the y-value in the same
column is the weight of the same person after the diet. The difference represents the amount of weight lost (or gained)
by that person.
