a.       What is the mean age of this sample? What is the standard deviation?

b.      Create a frequency distribution table for denomination.

1. What is the percentage of people who identify themselves as Baptist in this sample?

d.      What is the mode of church attendance?

2.      The results of a recent survey indicate that the average new car costs \$23,000, with a standard deviation of \$3,500. The price of cars is normally distributed.

a.       What is a Z score for a car with a price of \$ 33,000?

b.      What is a Z score for a car with a price of \$30,000?

c.       At what percentile rank is a car that sold for \$30,000?

3.      In one elementary school, 200 students are tested on the subject of Math and English. The table below shows the mean and standard deviation for each subject.

 Mean SD Math 67 9.58 English 78 12.45

One student’s Math score was 70 and the same individual’s English score was 84. On which exam did the student do better?

4.      Suppose you administered an anxiety test to a large sample of people and obtained normally distributed scores with a mean of 45 and standard deviation of 4. Do not use web-calculator to answer the following questions. Instead, you need to use the Z distribution table in Appendix A in Jackson’s book.

a.       If Andrew scored 45 on this test. What is his Z score?

b.      If Anna scored 30 on this test. What is her Z score?

c.       If Bill’s Z score was 1.5, what is his real score on this test?

d.      There are 200 students in a sample. How many of these students will have scores that fall under the score of 41?

5.      The table below shows Psychology exam scores, Statistics Exam scores, and IQ scores for a random sample of students. What can you observe in the relationship between IQ and psychology, psychology and statistics, and IQ and statistics? Using a web-calculator, obtain the Pearson’s r and coefficient of determination for the following relationships.

a.       Between the IQ and psychology scores

b.      Between the IQ and statistics scores

c.       Between the psychology scores and statistics scores.

 Student number IQ Psychology Statistics 101 142 49 49 102 100 30 32 103 103 36 38 104 121 44 41 105 120 35 42 106 115 47 43 107 101 37 35 108 109 45 47 109 111 30 43 110 115 49 46

6.      In a study on caffeine and stress, college students indicated how many cups of coffee they drink per day and their current stress level on a scale of 1 to 10. The table shows the survey results.  Using a web-calculator, obtain the appropriate correlation coefficients.

 Number of cups of coffee Stress level 3 5 2 3 4 3 6 9 5 4 1 2 7 10 3 5
