  1. (2 points) Sketch a box plot. Do your best to draw it to scale.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. (1 point) What is the IQR for this data set? ____________

 

 

 

 

  1. (3 points) Outlier identification

 

 

Any data value less than ________or greater than_______ is to be considered an outlier.

 

Therefore, the following data values are outliers (write “none” if there are no outliers):

 

  1. (3 points) Construct a 95% confidence interval for the population’s mean.

 

 

 

____________ < μ < ____________

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. (2 points) If someone were to ask you what this particular confidence interval means, what would you say?

 

 

 

 

 

11. (5 points) Test the hypothesis that the population’s mean is different from the sample’s median value.

Use α = 0.05.

 

 

Alternative hypothesis (H1): ________________

 

 

Null hypothesis (H0): _____________________

 

 

Critical value: ____________

 

 

Test statistic: ____________

 

 

Conclusion:

Do you reject the null hypothesis(yes or no)? _________

 

 

If someone were to ask what the conclusion means in this particular study, what would you say?
