1 TMTA Statistics Exam Last month, the mean and standard deviation of the paychecks of 10 employees of a small company were \$1250 and \$150, respectively. This month, each one of the 10 employees received a \$125 raise on his/her check. What is the mean and standard deviation of their paychecks this month? (A) Mean = \$1375, Standard Deviation = \$150 (B) Mean = \$1375, Standard Deviation = \$275 (C) Mean = \$1250, Standard Deviation = \$150 (D) Mean = \$ , Standard Deviation = \$ (E) Unable to be determined without having the actual data 2. Ali H. Mokdad, Ph.D., and colleagues from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Atlanta, conducted a study to identify and quantify the leading causes of death in the United States. The researchers used year 2000 mortality data reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to identify the causes and number of deaths. The leading causes of death in 2000 are given below. Which type of graph is appropriate to display these data? Leading Causes of Death Counts Tobacco 435,000 Poor Diet and Physical Inactivity 400,000 Alcohol Consumption 85,000 Microbial Agents 75,000 Toxic Agents 55,000 Motor Vehicle Crashes 43,000 Incidents Involving Firearms 29,000 Sexual Behaviors 20,000 Illicit Use of Drugs 17,000 (A) Histogram (B) Stem plot (C) Scatterplot (D) Boxplot (E) Bar Chart 3. There are three senior citizens in a room, ages 68, 70, and 72. If a seventy-year-old person enters the room, the (A) mean age will stay the same, but the variance will increase. (B) mean age and variance will stay the same. (C) mean age will stay the same, but the variance will decrease. (D) mean age and variance will increase. (E) mean age and variance will decrease.

2 Length (mm) 4. The Educational Testing Service reported that the mean Graduate Record Exam (GRE) score for all individuals who have taken the exam was 529. A student with a GRE score of 600 wants to know her relative standing in relation to the mean GRE. The most appropriate numerical summary for this purpose is (A) median. (B) interquartile range. (C) number of individuals that took the exam. (D) standard deviation. (E) correlation coefficient. 5. A biologist is interested in comparing the lengths of male and female green lynx spiders measured in millimeters. He makes side-by-side boxplots using data collected on the lengths of 30 male and 30 female green lynx spiders and produces the graph and summary statistics given below. 11 Lengths (mm) of Green Lynx Spiders Male Female Group Count Mean Median Std Dev Male mm mm mm Female mm mm mm The lengths of the female spiders tend to be (A) longer than the lengths of the males. The 25 th percentile (Q1), which is mm for the females, is longer than nearly all of the male lengths. The lengths of the females vary more than the lengths of the males. (B) shorter than the lengths of the males. The lengths of the females vary less than the lengths of the males. (C) about the same as the males since the summary statistics are nearly the same. (D) longer than the lengths of the males since the standard deviation of the female lengths is larger than the standard deviation of the male lengths. (E) shorter than the lengths of the males since the male lengths contain a high outlier and the female lengths do not.

3 Sleep 6. If the biologist in problem 5 decided that the Normal model was appropriate for the distribution of the lengths for the female spiders, what interval would contain the middle 95% of the female lengths? (A) mm to 9.34 mm (B) mm to mm (C) mm to mm (D) mm to mm (E) mm to mm 7. Which one of the following statements involving correlation is possible and reasonable? (A) The correlation between hair color and eye color is (B) The correlation between left foot length and right foot length is (C) The correlation between hair color and age is positive. (D) The correlation between hair color and eye color is 0. (E) The correlation between the height of a father and the height of his first son is Can we predict the total amount of sleep an individual will receive based on the time he/she went to bed the night before? A fitted line plot of this relationship between the variables ToSleep (measured in hours with midnight equaling zero) and Sleep (measured in hours) for a simple random sample of individuals is given below. The correlation between the two variables is r = Fitted Line Plot Sleep = ToSleep ToSleep Which of the following is the correct interpretation of the slope of this regression equation? (A) Since the correlation is , amount of sleep decreases by 53.1%, on the average. (B) For every hour that passes before an individual goes to sleep, the amount of sleep that he/she receives decreases by hours, on the average. (C) As the amount of sleep that an individual receives decreases, the time that the individual goes to sleep decreases by hours, on the average. (D) For every hour that passes before an individual goes to sleep, the amount of sleep that he/she receives decreases by hours, on the average. (E) For each additional hour of sleep that an individual receives, the time that he/she went to sleep decreases by hours, on the average.

5 13. The weather reporter predicts that there is 90% chance of rain tomorrow for a certain region. What is meant by this phrase? (A) Rain occurs 90% of the time in this region.

(E) The occurrence of rain is truly random and will occur 90% of the time. 14. A consumer group surveyed the price for a certain item in five different stores and reported the median price is \$15. We visited four of the five stores and found the price of the item to be \$10, \$15, \$15, and \$25. Assuming that the consumer group correctly calculated the median, the price of the item at the store we did not visit (A) must be \$15. (B) must be below \$15. (C) must be above \$15. (D) must a value between \$10 and \$25. (E) could be any value. 15. The nutritional status of each of 1000 elementary school children was assessed and recorded as poor, adequate, or excellent.

(A) (B) (C) (D) (E) A survey was designed to study how the operations of a group of businesses vary with their size. Companies were classified as small, medium, and large. Questionnaires were sent to 200 randomly selected businesses of each size, for a total of 600 questionnaires. Since not all questionnaires in a survey of this type are returned, it was decided to examine whether the response rate varied with the size of the business. The data are given in the table below.

(C) Exactly the same number of companies responded as didn t respond. (D) Small companies dislike larger companies. (E) The data should be displayed using percentages rather than counts since we are trying to make comparisons between the sizes of the companies. 18.
