a. Which do you think has a stronger relationship with value of the

propertylong dash

the

number of square feet in the home or the number of fireplaces in the home? Why?

A.

The number of square feet has a stronger relationship with the value of the property, as shown by the fact that the points are more scattered in a vertical direction.

B.

The number of square feet has a stronger relationship with the value of the property, as shown by the fact that the points are less scattered in a vertical direction.

This is the correct answer.

C.

The number of fireplaces has a stronger relationship with the value of the property, as shown by the fact that the points are less scattered in a vertical direction.

D.

The number of fireplaces has a stronger relationship with the value of the property, as shown by the fact that the points are more scattered in a vertical direction.

b. If you were trying to predict the value of a property (where there is a home) in this area, would you be able to make a better prediction by knowing the number of square feet or the number of fireplaces? Explain. Choose the correct answer below.

A.

Square feet. Total value is more strongly associated with square feet, because there is less variability in total value for any given value of square feet.

This is the correct answer.

B.

Fireplaces. Total value is more strongly associated with fireplace, because there is less variability in total value for any given value of number of fireplaces.

C.

Neither because the association is the same between the value of property and square feet and the value of property and the number of fireplaces.

The scatterplot shows the number of work hours and the number of TV hours per week for some college students who work. There is a very slight trend. Is the trend positive or negative? What does the direction of the trend mean in this context? Identify any unusual points.

A scatterplot has a horizontal axis labeled “Work Hours” from 10 to 70 in intervals of 10 and a vertical axis labeled “TV Hours” from 0 to 30 in intervals of 5. Points plotted have a somewhat negative trend between approximately (10, 30) and (5, 50), with average vertical spread around 15. all points remain within the horizontal bounds between 10 and 50, with the exception of one point at 70.

What is the trend? What does the direction of the trend mean? Choose the correct answer below.

A.

The trend is negative. The more hours of work a student has, the more hours of TV the student tends to watch.

B.

The trend is positive. The more hours of work a student has, the fewer hours of TV the student tends to watch.

C.

The trend is negative. The more hours of work a student has, the fewer hours of TV the student tends to watch.

This is the correct answer.

D.

The trend is positive. The more hours of work a student has, the more hours of TV the student tends to watch.

Identify any unusual points. Select the correct choice below and, if necessary, fill in the answer box to complete your choice.

A.

The person who works

70

hours appears to be an outlier, because that point is separated from the other points by a large amount.

B.

hours is an unusual point, because there aren’t that many hours in a week.

There are no unusual points in this graph

What is the probability that the person said Yes?

(Round to three decimal places as needed.)

Are the event being male and the event saying Yes mutually exclusive? Why or why not?

A.

The events are not mutually exclusive because the probability that a person said yes given that they are male is not the same as the probability that a person is male.

B.

The events are not mutually exclusive because a person chosen could be male and say Yes.

This is the correct answer.

C.

The events are not mutually exclusive because the probability that a person is male given that they said yes is not the same as the probability that a person said yes.

D.

The events are mutually exclusive because a person chosen could be male and say Yes.

What is the probability that a person is male and said Yes?

(Round to three decimal places as needed.)

To find the probability that a person is male or said yes, why should you subtract the probability that a person is male and said Yes from the sum as shown below?

P(male or

Yes)equals

P(male)plusP(Yes)minus

P(male

and Yes)

A.

For this specific problem P(male and Yes) should be subtracted out.

B.

The events are mutually exclusive so P(Male and Yes) has to be subtracted out, but the value is always 0 in this case.

C.

Because any males who said yes would be counted twice if just P(Male) and P(Yes) were added.

This is the correct answer.

D.

Because P(male or Yes) is looking for people who are male or who said Yes but not both.

Perform the calculation P(male or

Yes)equals

P(male)plusP(Yes)minus

P(male

Suppose a randomized experiment is conducted to test whether loud music interferes with memorizing numbers. There are 10 participants.

Let the digits 0, 1, 2, 3, and 4 represent assignment to the experimental group (music) and the digits 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 represent assignment to the control group.

A coordinate system has a horizontal axis labeled from less than negative 3 to 3 plus in intervals of 1 and a vertical axis labeled “Density.” A Normal curve extends between the left and right edges of the graph with a peak at horizontal coordinate 0. A vertical line segment, running from the horizontal axis to the curve, is plotted at approximate horizontal coordinate negative 1.3. The area under the curve to the right of the vertical line is shaded.
