The number of bottles filled each day in a bottling plant is observed for a
week: 674, 589, 613, 689, 554, 586, and 594. What was the standard
deviation?
If a given distribution is known to be bellshaped and symmetric, what percent
of the observations are expected to fall within two standard deviations of the
mean?
The only legitimate measure of central tendency for nominal scale data
distributions is the:
The mean is ________ an inappropriate measure of central tendency or most
typical value for ordinal data.
Since the population size is always larger than the sample size, then the
sample statistic

mean = 60 range = 20
mode = 73 variance = 324
median = 74
The coefficient of variation equals

The length of baseball games is approximately normally distributed with a
mean of 2.45 hours. Using the Empirical Rule, about 95% of baseball games
