Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and the question states d) Would it be reasonable to state that this litter contained two “unusual” puppies; i.e., a runt and a giant? Why or why not? I know my mean is 28, S.D. is 9.27 and my 95% C.I is (9.83, 46.17) but dont know what this question is asking

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and also should i use sample S.D. or population S.D.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what i used was population S.D

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I think population is the correct one. Basically, I think the question is asking if you have two outliers in your data. In particular, you have a puppy that weighs 16, and one that weighs 46. Using your S.D. and CI, I think you're supposed to figure out if those puppies are "unusual."

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but if it lies in the CI can i say its normal or do i have to do some tests?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'm honestly not sure. If it lies in the CI though, I would tend to think it's still normal. But I'm not sure. It's been quite a while since I've had any statistics.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what do you mean by that ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0like i dont know what that question means. what i wrote is its not reasonable since all those values lie in the confidence intevral so its not unsual i dont know if that is right

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1most of the data is within one standard deviation of the mean

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so can i say everything is reasonable

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or should i argue puppy with weight 16 and 46 are unsual
