The two dot plots below show the heights of some sixth graders and some seventh graders:
The mean absolute deviation (MAD) for the first set of data is 1.2 and the MAD for the second set of data is 1.7. Approximately how many times the variability in the heights of the sixth graders is the variability in the heights of the seventh graders? (Round all values to the tenths place.)
1.2
1.4
2.4
2.8
i think it is 1.4

I'm not sure but I'm thinking 1.7/1.2 = 1.41666666666667, so it looks like you are correct

The table below shows the data for a random sample of fish that were collected from and later released into a lake:
Type of Fish Catfish Grass Carp Bluegill
Number of Fish 52 61 87
How many bluegills are estimated to be present if a sample of 800 fish is collected from the lake?
148
174
244
348
D, yes? @jim_thompson5910

- jim_thompson5910

correct
52+61+87 = 200
87/200 = 0.435
0.435*800 = 348

A researcher posts a magazine advertisement offering $30 in exchange for participation in a short study. The researcher accepts the first three people who respond to the advertisement. Which of the following statements is true about the sample?
It is not a valid sample because it is not a random sample of the population.
It is a valid sample because the first three people were selected to participate.
It is a valid sample because money was offered to participants.
It is not a valid sample because it is only a short study.
A? @jim_thompson5910

- jim_thompson5910

yeah it's not random and probably biased based on how payment is involved

Melissa wants to know if the number of words on a page in her geography book is generally more than the number of words on a page in her math book. She takes a random sample of 25 pages in each book, then calculates the mean, median, and mean absolute deviation for the 25 samples of each book.
Mean Median Mean Absolute Deviation
Geography 48.9 41 9.2
Math 34.5 44 1.9
She claims that because the mean number of words on each page in the geography book is greater than the mean number of words on each page in the math book, the geography book has more words per page. Based on the data, is this a valid inference?
Yes, because the mean is larger in the geography book
No, because the mean is larger in the geography book
No, because there is a lot of variability in the geography book data
Yes, because there is a lot of variability in the geography book data

Juliet conducted a survey to find the favorite type of book of the students at her school. She asked 20 students from her class what their favorite type of book is. Juliet concludes that short stories is the favorite type of book of the students in her school because 80% of the students in her class like short stories.
Use at least two sentences to explain why Juliet's sample may not be valid.
Juliet's sample may not be valid because her class is not a random sample. The 20 students in her class do not represent the entire school.

Agreed. She is better off placing all of the names in school in a hat or something, then randomly picking out the names.

Meg concludes that students spend a mean of 7 hours in school each day. Tara thinks the mean is 6 hours. Who is correctâ€”Meg or Tara? Explain your answer in two or three sentences.

- jim_thompson5910

what did you get

- muscrat123

607

- muscrat123

:(

- jim_thompson5910

how did you get that

- muscrat123

multiplied options by the hours spent in school, added them then divided

- muscrat123

plz help

- jim_thompson5910

still thinking

- jim_thompson5910

I think I have it, one sec

- jim_thompson5910

ok I think you forgot to divide by 100
instead of 607 it should be 6.07
so Tara is right

can u help me with that?

The dot plots below show the ages of students belonging to two groups of painting classes:
Based on visual inspection, which group most likely has a lower mean age of painting students? Explain your answer using two or three sentences.

##### 1 Attachment

- muscrat123

Probably Group A because there is less variability than Group B. The variability for Group A is also closer to the smaller numbers on the number line.
this is what i put @jim_thompson5910

- jim_thompson5910

B is more spread out and that pulls the mean to the right. B has a larger mean

- muscrat123

the question says lower mean @jim_thompson5910

- jim_thompson5910

so that means A has a lower mean

- muscrat123

was i correct then?
