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 @jim_thompson5910

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

    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

    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 @jim_thompson5910

    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. @jim_thompson5910

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

    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

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