Loretta, who turns eighty this year, has just learned about blood pressure problems in the elderly and is interested in how her blood pressure compares to those of her peers. Specifically, she is interested in her systolic blood pressure, which can be problematic among the elderly. She has uncovered an article in a scientific journal that reports that the mean systolic blood pressure measurement for women over seventy-five is mmhg, with a standard deviation of mmhg. Assume that the article reported correct information. Complete the following statements about the distribution of systolic blood pressure measurements for women over seventy-five. (a) According to Chebyshev's theorem, at least 84% of the measurements lie between mmhg and mmhg. (Round your answer to 1 decimal place.) (b) According to Chebyshev's theorem, at least % of the measurements lie between mmhg and mmhg. a. 56% b. 75% c. 84% d. 89% (c) Suppose that the distribution is bell-shaped.

### MEASURES OF VARIATION

NORMAL DISTRIBTIONS MEASURES OF VARIATION In statistics, it is important to measure the spread of data. A simple way to measure spread is to find the range. But statisticians want to know if the data are

### Shape of Data Distributions

Lesson 13 Main Idea Describe a data distribution by its center, spread, and overall shape. Relate the choice of center and spread to the shape of the distribution. New Vocabulary distribution symmetric

### 4.1 Exploratory Analysis: Once the data is collected and entered, the first question is: "What do the data look like?"

Data Analysis Plan The appropriate methods of data analysis are determined by your data types and variables of interest, the actual distribution of the variables, and the number of cases. Different analyses
