The number of pieces in each box is assumed to be normally distributed with a mean of 48 pieces and a standard deviation of 4.3 pieces. Quality control will reject any box with fewer than 44 pieces.

$ Answer Data are normally distributed. Explanations will vary, but students should notice that much of the data is clustered around the mean and quite evenly distributed above and below the mean. b) 151.6; 23.31 c)0.3673; Answers may vary, but students should observe that the data are discrete, so continuity correction must be used.

JEOPARDY! Slide Show Setup The font for the question & answer slides is Enchanted; a copy of this font in located in the REAL Jeopardy Template folder or included in the jeopardy_pc.zip file. (This font will need to be installed in the C:/WINDOWS/FONTS folder of the computer running the show.) In order to keep all of the sounds and fonts together, copy the entire REAL Jeopardy Template folder or jeopardy_pc.zip file. To change the categories: –1. Go to the Editmenu and choose Replace… –2. In the Find box, type CATEGORY X (X being 1 through 5) (all caps). –3. In the Replace box, type the category in all caps (for example, PRESIDENTS). –4. Click Replace All… To change the dollar values (for example to create Double Jeopardy): –1. Go to the Edit menu and choose Replace… –2. In the Find box, type $X (the dollar value you want to change). –3. In the Replace box, type the new dollar value (with $). –4. Click Replace All...
JEOPARDY! Slide Show Setup continued To set up the Daily Double: –1. Choose which dollar value(s) to set as Daily Double (normally, Jeopardy has one Daily Double, and Double Jeopardy has two). –2.

In the Edit Hyperlink window, go to Named location in file and click Browse… –4. In the Hyperlink to Slide window, scroll down to the appropriate slide; Slides 64 and 65 are regular Daily Doubles, Slide 66 is an Audio Daily Double, Slide 67 is a Video Daily Double. Click OK. –5. Go to the Daily Double slide just linked to, and right click once on the answer arrow at the bottom right, choose Hyperlink, and choose Edit Hyperlink. –6. In the Action Settings window, make sure the Hyperlink button (to the left of Hyperlink) is selected, and in the select box underneath choose Slide… –7. In the Hyperlink to Slide window, scroll down to the appropriate question slide (the original slide number of the question). NOTE: Using the Audio and Video Daily Doubles requires adding audio or video/picture clips to the question slides. If you are not familiar with doing this in PowerPoint, do not use those Daily Doubles.
Running the JEOPARDY! Slide Show On the game board with the categories on top (Slide 8), click on the desired dollar value. (The first game board is used only to blink in the dollar values like the show.) The question slide will pop up; the slides are timed with an eight-second timer. At the end of the timer, an alarm will chime. ICONS: –? Go to the answer screen. –House Go back to the game board. –Right Arrow (on Daily Doubles) Go to the question screen. –Right Arrow w/ Bar (on Game Board) Go to the Final Jeopardy category. –Turned-up Arrow Reload question screen after incorrect guess. –$ Go to the Scoreboard slide. –Left Arrow (on Scoreboard) Go to the previous slide.
