Frequency distribution:                   Frequency distribution

Class width = 2                               Class width = 5

Class   Frequency                           Class       Frequency

11-12         1                                   11-15            10

13-14         7                                   16-20            15

15-16         6                                   21-25              3

17-18         7                                   26-30              3

10. I have a collection of 5 ancient gold coins. Their weights, in ounces, are 23.1, 18.6, 33.5, 12.4, and 27.1.

a. (5 points) What is the mean weight of my ancient gold coins?

b. (5 points) How do you consider this collection, a population or a sample? Why?

c. (10 points) What is the variance and standard deviation in weight of my coin collection?

a)      Mean = (23.1+18.6+…27.1)/5 = 22.94

b)      It is a sample since we have only 5 ancient gold coins and surely there were more than that

c)      Variance =  [(23.1-22.94)2+ …..(27.1-22.94)2]/4 = 64.693

Standard deviation = Övariance = Ö64.693 =  8.043

11. Below is a summary of test score in two sections. The questions and possible maximum scores are different in these two sections. We notice that Student A4 in Section A and Student B2 in Section B have the same numerical score.

 Test A Student Score Test B Student Score A1 70 B1 15 A2 42 B2 61 A3 53 B3 48 A4 61 B4 90 A5 22 B5 85 A6 87 B6 73 A7 59 B7 48 —– —— B8 39

a. (15 points) How do these two students stand relative to their own classes based on their z-scores?

b. (5 points) Which student performed better? Explain your answer based on z-score.

a)

Section A scores:

Mean = 56.29

Standard deviation = 20.62

z-score of 61 = (61-56.29)/20.62 = 0.228

Section B scores:

Mean =57.38

Standard deviation = 25.85

z-score of 61 = 0.14

Based on the z-scores student A4 is 0.228 standard deviations above the mean and student B2

Is 0.14 standard deviations above the mean

b)

Student A4 performed better than student B2 since the z-score of A4 (0.228) is greater than the z-score of B2 (0.14)
