# ch. 4 & 5 practice worksheet answers ```AP STAT- Ch. 4 and Ch. 5 practice
1) Use the following data: {5, 7, 8, 10, 12, 15, 17, 20, 30, 31, 22, 25, 28, 33, 34, 35, 39, 40} (list Ques1)
a. Find the Mean, Median, Range, IQR, and Standard deviation.
Mean = 22.833
Median = 23.5
Range = (5, 40)
IQR = 21
Std. Dev = 11.521
b. Create a boxplot of the data

Question 1 data
c. Suppose we add the data point 62 to this set of data. Indicate how each of the statistics in part (a)
would change: increase, decrease, or stay about the same.
Mean = Increase
Range = Increase
Std. Dev = Increase
2) The following are quiz scores from two Algebra 1 Classes.
Class 1: {68, 93, 53, 100, 77, 86, 91, 88, 72, 74, 66, 82} and
Class 2: {77, 91, 82, 68, 75, 72, 85, 65, 70, 79, 94, 86}
a. Compare the means of the class scores. Which would you rather be in?
Mean of Class 1 = 79.167
Mean of Class 2 = 78.667
I would rather be in Class 1- they have the higher mean
b. Compare the standard deviations. Which class was more consistent in their scores?
Std. Dev. of Class 1 = 13.361
Std. Dev. of Class 2 = 9.188
Class 2 had the more consistent scores. I would now rather be in class 2 because their mean was not that
much lower and they were more consistent. Class 1 was more spread out.
3) Based solely on the mean and median given, decide on the shape of the distribution, and what measure of
center and spread you would report.
(a) Mean = 100
(b) Mean = 20
(c) Mean = 934
Median = 98
Median = 41
Median = 850

4) Use the following set of data:
{3, 4, 4, 4, 5, 6, 6, 7, 8, 10, 11, 11, 16, 17, 20, 25, 28, 30, 31, 39, 45, 59, 68, 73} (list Ques4)
a. Look at (not draw) a histogram of the data (just use Zoom 9, no need to adjust the window).
b. Describe the distribution (be sure to use the correct measure of center and spread)
Shape: Right skewed, unimodal
Center: Median of 13.5 units
Spread: IQR of 24.5 units, Range of (3, 73) units
IQR = 24.5
1.5 * IQR = 36.75
LF = Q1 – 36.75 = -30.75
UF = Q3 + 36.75 = 67.25
Anything outside of (-30.75, 67.25) is considered an outlier. Therefore, there are 2 outliers: 68 and 73.
5) Give a set of numbers that would have a standard deviation of 0
Any set of data where all numbers are the same. For example: {10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10}
6) The Presidents of the USA and their Age of Death (list PRES). Create a Relative Frequency Histogram and
describe the distribution.

Description: Right skewed, unimodal. Center at the Median of 67 years. Spread is an IQR of 18 years, and a
range of (46, 93) years.
