Question

(a) In a group of 230 students there are 20 freshman, 113 sophomores, 72 juniors, and 30 seniors. Compute the relative frequency of these events – the event here that of a student belonging to a particular class. Compute the relative frequency of a student being an upper classman (junior or senior). Show the corresponding histogram using relative frequencies for the y-axis, and ordering the groups by seniority on the x-axis.

(b) Assume that it is the first day of class. A freshman has spent 0 years in college, a sophomore 1 year, etc. Compute the mean, median, and mode for the number of years in college in this sample.

Answer #1

The relative frequency of an event is defined as the number of times that the event occurs during experimental trials, divided by the total number of trials conducted.

Relative frequency for freshman = 20/230 =0.087

Relative frequency for sophomores = 113/230 = 0.0491

Relative frequency for juniors = 72/230 = 0.3130

Relative frequency for seniors = 30/230 = 0.1304

Relative frequency for junior or senior = 102/230 = 0.4434

Now we want to find the mean median mode

mean = 0*20+1*113+2*72+3*30/230=1.50

median = middle value which will be 1

mode = 1

Suppose a 15-person committee is made up of 1 freshman, 4
sophomores, 6 juniors, and 4 seniors. The
committee randomly selects four officers: President, Vice
President, Secretary, and Treasurer.
a) What is the probability that the President is a senior?
b) What is the probability that the President is a senior, and the
remaining officers are juniors?
c) What is the probability that all of the officers are
sophomores?
d) What is the probability that the President is freshman,
Vice-President...

Of students at a particular university:
20% are freshmen
22% are sophomores
23% are juniors
28% are seniors
7% are graduate students.
Additionally, 60% of students are female. You may assume that
being female is independent of the above classifications.
A student will be selected at random and the variable CODE is
defined based on the classification of the selected student:
If freshmen, CODE = 1
If sophomore, CODE = 2
If junior, CODE = 3
If senior, CODE =...

An upper-level sociology class has 120 registered
students: 34 seniors, 57 juniors, 22 sophomores and 7 freshmen.
Imagine that you choose one random student from the classroom
(perhaps by using a random number table).
What is the probability that the student will be a
junior?
What is the probability that the student will be a
freshmen?
If you are asked to select a proportionate stratified
sample of size 30 from the classroom, stratified by class level
(senior, junior, etc), how...
