### As what type of variable would you classify month of birth?

• A.

Quantitative

• B.

Categorical

• C.

None of the Above

Correct Answer
B. Categorical
Explanation
The month of birth is classified as a categorical variable because it represents distinct categories or groups. Categorical variables are used to classify data into groups or categories based on qualitative characteristics, such as names or labels. In this case, the month of birth does not have a numerical value and cannot be measured on a numerical scale. Instead, it represents different categories or groups based on the twelve months of the year. Therefore, it is appropriate to classify the month of birth as a categorical variable.

Categorical variables are used to classify data into distinct groups or categories, making GPA a suitable example of this type of variable.

### Categorize the following distribution:

• A.

Skewed Right

• B.

Skewed Left

• C.

Symmetric

• D.

Even

Correct Answer
B. Skewed Left
Explanation
The given answer, "Skewed Left," suggests that the distribution is asymmetrical and the tail of the distribution is longer on the left side. This means that there are more observations with lower values and fewer observations with higher values.

Rate this question:

• 6.

### Categorize the following distribution:

• A.

Skewed Right

• B.

Skewed Left

• C.

Symmetric

• D.

Even

Correct Answer
A. Skewed Right
Explanation
The given answer, "Skewed Right," suggests that the distribution is asymmetrical and the tail of the distribution extends towards the right side. This means that there are more extreme values on the right side of the distribution, while the majority of the data is concentrated towards the left side.

Rate this question:

• 7.

### Categorize the following distribution:

• A.

Skewed Right

• B.

Skewed Left

• C.

Symmetric

• D.

Even

Correct Answer
C. Symmetric
Explanation
The distribution is categorized as symmetric because it is evenly balanced around the mean. This means that the data is equally distributed on both sides of the mean, resulting in a bell-shaped curve when plotted on a graph.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### Create a stemplot with the following date:  20, 28, 33, 23, 21, 18, 24, 20, 32, 16, 27, 21, 27, 22 to enter answer use stem then L then leaf seperated by commas i.e.  4L1,2,3

Correct Answer
1L6,8 2L0,0,1,1,2,3,4,7,7,8 3L2,3
1L 6, 8 2L 0, 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 7, 8 3L 2, 3
Explanation
The stemplot is a visual representation of the data values. The stems represent the tens digit of the data values, while the leaves represent the ones digit. The stemplot provided shows the stems (tens digits) in ascending order, followed by the leaves (ones digits) for each stem. For example, the stem "1L" represents the tens digit 1, and the leaves "6,8" represent the ones digits 6 and 8. The stemplot helps to organize and display the data in a concise and easy-to-read format.

### Find the mean for the number of points Points    4        5       6         7 Tally        10     8       12       5

• A.

5.5

• B.

8.75

• C.

5.3

• D.

7.125

Correct Answer
C. 5.3
Explanation
The mean is calculated by summing up all the numbers and dividing by the total number of values. In this case, the sum of the points is 4+5+6+7 = 22. The total number of values is 4. Therefore, the mean is 22/4 = 5.5. However, none of the answer choices match this calculation. Therefore, it can be concluded that the question is incomplete or not readable, and an explanation cannot be generated.

Rate this question:

• 11.

### With the data 6, 4, 4, 3, 3  find the following: a) range b) interquartile range c) standard deviation
