Which measure of center is the only one that can be used with data at the nominal level of measurement? 1.Mean 2.Median 3.Mode
Which of the following measures of center is not affected by outliers? 1.Mean 2.Median 3.Mode
Find the mode for the given sample data. 79, 25, 79, 13, 25, 29, 56, 79 1.79 2.48.1 3.42.5 4.25
Which is not true about the variance? 1.It is the square of the standard deviation. 2.It is a measure of the spread of data. 3.The units of the variance are different from the units of the original data. 4.It is not affected by outliers.
Weekly sales for a company average $10,000 with a standard deviation of $450. Sales for the past week were $9050. This is 1.unusually high. 2.unusually low. 3.about right.
In a data set with a range of 55.1 to 102.8 and 300 observations, there are 207 data points with values less than 88.6. Find the percentile for 88.6. 1.32 2.116.03 3.69 4.670
Which graphic display shows the least detailed information? 1.Histogram 2.Stem-and-leaf plot 3.Boxplot
Last year, nine employees of an electronics company retired. Find the mean retirement age: 52, 50, 60, 68, 64, 50, 64, 58, 50. 1.56.1 years 2.56.7 years 3.58.0 years 4.57.3 years

Jeanne is currently taking college zoology. The instructor often gives quizzes. On the past five quizzes, Jeanne got the following scores: 18, 16, 3, 1, 20. Find the variance. 1.107.3 2.79.3 3.63.4 4.79.2
The maximum value of a distribution is 47.5 and the minimum value is 4.0. Use the range rule of thumb to estimate the standard deviation. Round results to the nearest tenth. 1.7.9 2.18.9 3.10.9 4.15.9
Which score has the highest relative position: a score of 51.5 on a test for which the mean is 47 and s = 9; a score of 5.9 on a test for which the mean is 4.2 and s = 1.2; or a score of 460.8 on a test for which the mean is 444 and s = 42? 1.A score of 51.5 2.A score of 460.8 3.A score of 5.9
