True

For the following frequency distribution of QUIZ SCORES, how many individuals took the quiz? X=5, 4, 3, 2, 1 // f=6 , 5, 5, 3, 2

n = 21

A biologist records the number of trout, bass, perch, and other types of fish caught in a local lake during a 2 – week period. If the results are organized in a frequency distribution table ,WHAT VALUES would be LISTED in the FIRST COLUMN?

##### Different types of fish

For the following distribution, how many people have scores greater than X = 14? (hint = HALF of 14) X = 20-24, 15- 19-10-14- 5-9 // F = 2, 5, 4, 1

A researcher collects a sample of n = 20 Introductory Psychology textbooks and records the number of pages in each book. The results are then placed in a grouped frequency distribution table using intervals of 0-99 pages, 100-199 pages, 200, 299 pages and so on. If the results were converted into a frequency distribution graph, WHAT KIND OF GRAPH SHOULD BE USED?

Either a histogram or a polygon

How many individual scores are in the following distribution? f = 4, 3, 2, 1, // X = 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 (count the f column = 10)

n = 10

WHAT IS THE SHAPE of the distribution for the following set of data? X = 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, // f = 1, 1, 2, 4, 5

Positively skewed

What is the VALUE of E(X-1)2 for the scores 1, 2, 1, 4?
