1 Math 10 Name W C Exam 5: Chapter 13 Each problem is worth 10 points. You must show all work to receive full credit. 1. State whether each statement is true or false. a. A normal distribution has a bell shaped curve. T b. The symbol, a, is used to indicate the standard deviation of a sample, and the symbol, s, is used to indicate the standard deviation of a population. c. A standard deviation is an average of the data. ^ d. Averages are referred to as the measures of central tendency. T e. Every 10* ipod checked for defects coming off an assembly line is an example of a stratified sample. f f In a frequency distribution, the class with the greatest frequency is called the modal class. g. The mean is found by putting the data in order and choosing the middle data value. h. The mean of a set of data will always have a zscore of 0. \ i. A piece of data that has a negative zscore is above the mean. V" j. The measures of dispersion that measures how much the data differ from the mean is called the range. 2. Choose the sampling technique that best describes each statement. i. When a sample is obtained by drawing every nth item, the sample is a. Random called a(n) C sample. ii. If a sample is drawn in such a way that each time an item is selected, each item in the population has an equal chance of being drawn, the sample is called a(n) (K^ sample. iii. When a population is divided into parts, called strata, for the purpose of drawing a sample, the procedure is known as ('\. iv. A sample that consists of a random selection of groups or units is called a(n) b^_ sample. V. A sample that uses data that are easily or readily obtained is called ^(n) sample. b. Cluster c. Systematic d. Stratified e. Convenience f Population

A mean average of 80 or greater for five exams is needed for a final grade of B in a course. Say your first four exam grades are 73, 69, 85, and 80. a. What grade do you need on the fifth exam to get a B in the course? 0 b. Say your lowest grade of the exams already taken is to be dropped, what grade must you receive on your last exam to receive a B in the course? /
