a.     mean

b.     median

c.     mode

d.     Variance

e.     standard deviation

f.      linear transformation

 

2.     Which of the following are measures of variability? Select all that apply

 

a.     mean

b.     median

c.     mode

d.     variance

e.     standard deviation

f.      linear transformation



3.     Rachael and Peter are discussing how the mean value and variance affect the distribution graph. As the following graph shows, there are two distributions: A and B



Peter said that the distribution A has fatter tail because its has bigger standard deviation than the distribution B. Rachael's answer is different:she thinks the distribution A has a smaller standard deviation than the distribution B.
Who do you think is right?



a.     Peter

b.     Rachael

c.     None of them are right. Distribution A and Distribution B have the same standard deviation



4.     In a bell-shaped distribution, changing ___can make the distribution flatter (i.e. more compressed); and changing ___ can shift the distribution to the left or to the right.



a.     Variance, mean

b.     Mean, variance

c.     Range, standard deviation

d.     Mode, range

e.     Mean, range

f.      Mode, variance



5.     A research study found that in one physics class, the correlation between pre-exam and post-exam grades was 0.90. The variance of pre-exam grades was 9 and the variance of post-exam grades was 16. Thus, the variance of the difference between pre-exam and post-exam grades is:  (show work)



6.     Image that a researcher examined how the people’s heights are associated with their salaries. She found that the correlation between heights (measured in inches) and salary range (measured in dollars) was .36. Had she measured the height in cm instead, what would the correlation have been?

STAT 200 OL1 / US1 Sections Final Exam Problem Number Solution 1. (a) TRUE (b) TRUE (c) FALSE (d) FALSE (e) FALSE Work: (a) For normal distribution curve mean, median and mode coincide. Also every distribution is divided into two equal parts by its median, i.e. symmetric about median. Since for a normal distribution curve mean is same as median, the distribution is symmetric about its mean. (b) If all the observations in a data set are identical, then its arithmetic mean is also has the same value of the observations. Therefore, it can be observed that all the mean deviations from the observations in the data set are zero, so as its variance is also zero. (c) Since A and AC are disjoint, the probability of their intersection must be equal to zero, not equal to 1. (d) If p-value is less than the level of significance α, it indicates that the test statistic fall in the rejection region, so we have sufficient evidence to reject the null hypothesis. (e) The volume of a milk jug represents a continuous data, since it can take any of the values between the given limits. 2. The shaded cells in the following table indicate the calculated values.
