1 12.3 – Analyzing Data

2 Measures of Central Tendency Mean:Add the data values and divide by the number of values Ex:The mean of 3, 5, 6, 8, 9 = 31/5 = 6.2

3 Measures of Central Tendency Median: The exact middle value. List the values in order from least to greatest; then find the middle value Ex:5, 9, 1, 4, 3= 1, 3, 4, 4, 9 Median = 4 Ex:5, 9, 1, 4, 3, 7= 1, 3, 4, 5, 7, 9 Median = mean of 4 and 5 = 4.5

4 Measures of Central Tendency Mode:The most common value in the set Ex:Find the Mode:2, 5, 6, 1, 2, 7, 9 Mode = 2 Ex:Find the Mode:3, 5, 6, 1, 8, 10, 12 Mode: none Ex:Find the Mode:4, 8, 0, 9, 8, 3, 4 Mode:4 and 8

5 Find the mean, median, and mode for these values: 78, 87, 84, 75, 80, 98, 78, 95, 72. The mean is 83, the median is 80, and the mode is 78. 72 75 78 78 80 84 87 95 98Find the median and the mode by ordering the values numerically. Mode Median (78 + 87 + 84 + 75 + 80 + 98 + 78 + 95 + 72) 9 747 9 = = 83 x = Use the symbol to designate the mean. x Lets Try One

6 Vocabulary: Quartile Take a set of data and arrange it from least to greatest. Find the median. Then sub-divide the lower half of the data and find the median. Repeat with the upper half of the data. The values separating the four parts are called quartiles. 56 58 58 63 65 71 74 78 82 84 85 86 Median of the data (Q2) or Quartile 2 (72.5) Median of the lower part (Q1) or Quartile 1 (60.5) Median of the lower part (Q3) or Quartile 3 (83)

7 Box and Whiskers Plot A Box and Whiskers Plot is a method of displaying data that uses quartiles to form the center of the box and the minimum and maximum values to form the whiskers Minimum Sample: Maximum 2 nd Quartile Q2 (median) 1 st Quartile (Q1) 3 rd Quartile (Q3)

8 Make a box-and-whisker plot for these values: 91, 95, 88, 85, 90, 97, 94, 100, 81. The minimum value is 81 and the maximum value is 100. Step 1: Find the quartile values, the minimum value, and the maximum value. 81 85 88 90 91 94 95 97 100 Q 2 = median = 91 The median is a value of the data set, it is removed for the calculation of Q 1 and Q 3. 81 85 88 90 94 95 97 100 Q 1 = = 86.5Q 3 = = 96 (85 + 88) 2 (95 + 97) 2

9 Step 2: Draw a number line for the base of your box-and-whisker plot. Above the number line, plot the three quartiles, the minimum value, and the maximum value. Step 3:Finish your box-and-whisker plot by drawing a box through Q 1 and Q 3, a vertical line through the median, and line segments from the box outward to the minimum and maximum values.

10 Make a box-and-whisker plot for these values: 34, 36, 47, 45, 28, 31, 29, 40 The minimum value is 28 and the maximum value is 47. Step 1: Find the quartile values, the minimum value, and the maximum value. 28 29 31 34 36 40 45 47 Q 2 = median = 35 The median is a value of the data set, it is removed for the calculation of Q 1 and Q 3. 28 29 31 34 36 40 45 47 Q 1 = = 30Q 3 = = 42.5 (29 + 31) 2 (40 + 45) 2 Lets Try One

11 Step 2: Draw a number line for the base of your box-and-whisker plot. Above the number line, plot the three quartiles, the minimum value, and the maximum value. 28303542.547 Step 3:Finish your box-and-whisker plot by drawing a box through Q1 and Q3, a vertical line through the median, and line segments from the box outward to the minimum and maximum values.

12 Vocabulary: Percentile A percentile is a value that divides the range of a data set into two parts such that the part below the percentile contains a given percent of the data

13 Example: Find the 30th and 60th percentiles for the values below. 54 98 45 87 98 64 21 61 71 82 93 65 62 98 87 24 65 97 31 47 Step 1: Order the values. 21 24 31 45 47 54 61 62 64 65 65 71 82 87 87 93 97 98 98 98 Step 2: Find the number of values that fall below the 30th percentile and the number that fall below the 60th percentile. Of the 20, 30% should fall below the 30th percentile and 60% should fall below the 60th percentile. 20 30% = 20 0.30 = 6 Since 61 is greater than 6 values, 61 is at the 30th percentile. The value at the 30th percentile is 61 and the value at the 60th percentile is 82. 20 60% = 20 0.60 = 12 Since 82 is greater than 12 values, 82 is at the 60th percentile.

14 Example: Find the 20th and 75th percentiles for the values below. 54 98 45 87 98 64 21 61 71 82 93 65 62 98 87 24 65 97 31 47 Step 1: Order the values. 21 24 31 45 47 54 61 62 64 65 65 71 82 87 87 93 97 98 98 98 Step 2: Find the number of values that fall below the 20th percentile and the number that fall below the 75th percentile. Of the 20, 20% should fall below the 30th percentile and 75% should fall below the 60th percentile. 20 20% = 20 0.20 = 4 Since 47 is greater than 4 values, 47 is at the 20th percentile. The value at the 20th percentile is 47 and the value at the 75th percentile is 93. 20 75% = 20 0.75 = 15 Since 93 is greater than 15 values, 93 is at the 75th percentile. Lets Try One

15 Vocabulary: Outlier An outlier is an item of data with a value substantially different than the rest of the items in the data

16 15 26 28 30 32 34 34 Order the data. Identify an outlier for this set of values: 15 34 28 32 30 26 34. 15 is substantially different, so 15 is an outlier. Find the differences between adjacent values. 1122220

Gulf of Mexico Eastern Coast Water Temperatures (°F) LocationJFMAMJJASOND Dauphin Island, Alabama 515360707582848480726256 Step 1:Use the STAT feature to enter data as L1 in your graphing calculator. Step 2:Use the LIST feature to access the MATH menu. Find the mean. 12-3

19 ALGEBRA 2 LESSON 12-3 Analyzing Data (continued) Step 3:Return to the same menu to find the median. The mean is about 69.1°F, the median is 71°F, and the mode is 84°F. Step 4:Use the STAT PLOT feature to access PLOT 1. Choose the histogram, L1, and Frequency 1 options. Then enter an appropriate viewing window. Step 5:Graph the data. Use the TRACE feature to move to the highest point of the graph. On the screen, the mode appears as the minimum value for the cursor. The mode is 84. The mode occurs two times in the data. 12-3

20 ALGEBRA 2 LESSON 12-3 Analyzing Data Use a graphing calculator to find the quartiles of the water temperature data for Dauphin, AL in Additional Example 2. Use the TRACE feature to find the quartile values. They are Q 1 = 58, Q 2 = 71, and Q 3 = 81. Use the STAT PLOT feature to select a box-and-whisker plot. Enter the window values.Graph the box-and-whisker plot. 12-3
