QNT 275 Week 5 Final Exam

Chapter 01, Testbank, Question 012

A quantitative variable is the only type of variable that can:

have no intermediate values

assume numeric values for which arithmetic operations make sense

be graphed

be used to prepare tables

Chapter 01, Testbank, Question 015

A qualitative variable is the only type of variable that:

can assume numerical values

cannot be graphed

can assume an uncountable set of values

cannot be measured numerically

Chapter 02, Testbank, Question 067-072

Correct.

The following table gives the cumulative frequency distribution of the commuting time (in minutes) from home to work for a sample of 400 persons selected from a city.

Time (minutes) f

0 to less than 10 66

0 to less than 20 148

0 to less than 30 220

0 to less than 40 294

0 to less than 50 356

0 to less than 60 400

The sample size is:

The percentage of persons who commute for less than 30 minutes, rounded to two decimal places, is:

%

The cumulative relative frequency of the fourth class, rounded to four decimal places, is:

The percentage of persons who commute for 40 or more minutes, rounded to two decimal places, is:

%

The percentage of persons who commute for less than 50 minutes, rounded to two decimal places, is:

%

The number of persons who commute for 20 or more minutes is:

Chapter 03, Testbank, Question 027-029

The temperatures (in degrees Fahrenheit) observed during seven days of summer in Los Angeles are:

78,99,68,91,97,75,85

The range of these temperatures is:

The variance of these temperatures, rounded to three decimals, is:

The standard deviation, rounded to three decimals, of these temperatures is:

Chapter 04, Testbank, Question 021-026

The following table gives the two-way classification of 500 students based on sex and whether or not they suffer from math anxiety.

Suffer From Math Anxiety

Sex Yes No

Male 151 89

Female 184 76

If you randomly select one student from these 500 students, the probability that this selected student is a female is: (round your answer to three decimal places, so 0.0857 would be 0.086)

If you randomly select one student from these 500 students, the probability that this selected student suffers from math anxiety is: (round your answer to three decimal places, so 0.0857 would be 0.086)

If you randomly select one student from these 500 students, the probability that this selected student suffers from math anxiety, given that he is a male is: (round your answer to three decimal places, so 0.0857 would be 0.086)

If you randomly select one student from these 500 students, the probability that this selected student is a female, given that she does not suffer from math anxiety is: (round your answer to three decimal places, so 0.0857 would be 0.086)

Which of the following pairs of events are mutually exclusive?

Male and no

No and yes

Male and yes

Female and yes

Female and male

Female and no

Are the events “Has math anxiety” and “Person is female” independent or dependent? Detail the calculations you performed to determine this.

Chapter 05, Testbank, Question 009

For the probability distribution of a discrete random variable x, the sum of the probabilities of all values of x must be:

equal to 1

equal to zero

in the range zero to 1

equal to 0.5

Chapter 05, Testbank, Question 034-035

The following table lists the probability distribution of a discrete random variable x:

x 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

P(x) 0.15 0.3 0.24 0.13 0.1 0.06 0.02

The mean of the random variable x is:

The standard deviation of the random variable x, rounded to three decimal places, is:

Chapter 06, Testbank, Question 036-038

The daily sales at a convenience store produce a distribution that is approximately normal with a mean of 1270 and a standard deviation of 136.

The probability that the sales on a given day at this store are between

1,200 and 1,300, rounded to four decimal places, is:
