    well, we pick the sample that is most like the population our population is: every student in the school, so which do you think is the answer?

    Stanley wants to know how many students in his school enjoy watching talk shows on TV. He asks this question to all 24 students in his history class and finds that 55% of his classmates enjoy watching talk shows on TV. He claims that 55% of the school's student population would be expected to enjoy watching talk shows on TV. Is Stanley making a valid inference about his population? No, it is not a valid inference because he asked all 24 students in his history class instead of taking a sample from his math class No, it is not a valid inference because his classmates do not make up a random sample of the students in the school Yes, it is a valid inference because his classmates make up a random sample of the students in the school Yes, it is a valid inference because he asked all 24 students in his history class

    The dot plots below show the weights of the players of two teams: Two dot plots are shown one below the other. The top and the bottom plots have the title Team C and Team D respectively. Below the line for each dot plot is written Weight followed by pounds in parentheses. The markings on each line are from 120 till 140 at intervals of 1. For the top plot there are two dots each for 120, 121 and 126 and 1 dot each for 123, and 128. For the bottom plot there are 2 dots each for 130 and 139 and 1 dot each for 126, 127, 132, and 135. Based on visual inspection of the dot plots, which team appears to have the larger mean weight? Not enough information is available to draw a conclusion. Both groups are similar. Team D Team C

    ok ! next The dot plots below show the scores for a group of students for two rounds of a quiz: Two dot plots are shown one below the other. The title for the dot plot on the top is Round 1 and the title for the bottom plot is Round 2. Below the line for each dot plot is written Score. There are markings from 1 to 5 on the line at intervals of one. There are 2 dots above the mark 2, there are 3 dots above the mark 3, there are 2 dots above the mark 4 and there is 1 dot above the mark 5. For the bottom dot plot there is 1 dot above the mark 2, there are 2 dots above the mark 3, there are 3 dots above the mark 4 and there are 2 dots above the mark 5. Which of the following inferences can be made using the dot plots? The range of each round is the same. There is no overlap between the data. Round 1 scores were higher than round 2 scores. Round 2 scores were lower than round 1 scores.

    Macy wants to know if the number of words on a page in her grammar 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 Grammar 49.7 41 8.4 Math 34.5 44 1.9 She claims that because the mean number of words on each page in the grammar book is greater than the mean number of words on each page in the math book, the grammar book has more words per page. Based on the data, is this a valid inference? No, because there is a lot of variability in the grammar book data. Yes, because there is a lot of variability in the grammar book data. Yes, because the mean is larger in the grammar book. No, because the mean is larger in the grammar book.
