Question

a cellular phone company monitors monthly phone usage. The following data represent the monthly phone use in minutes of one particular customer for the past 20 months. use the given data to answer parts (a) and (b)

321 423 417 416 508

378 390 491 552 387

325 430 329 454 547

337 345 490 340 356

(a) determine the standard deviation and interquartile range of the data.

S= ___ (round to two decimal places as needed)

IQR= ____(type an integer or a decimal)

Answer #1

(A) For standard deviation, we will first calculate the mean value of the data set

Mean = (sum of all values)/(total number of values)= (321+423+...+340+356)/20 = 8236/20 = 411.80

Formula for standard deviation is given as

where xi are given data values and x(bar) = sample mean = 411.80 and n is sample size = 20

setting the values, we get

this gives us

**Therefore, standard deviation = 74.36 (rounded to 2
decimals)**

we know that relationship between IQR and standard deviation is given as

IQR = 1.34*(standard deviation)

we have standard deviation = 74.36

so, IQR = 1.34*74.36 = 99.6424 or 99.64 (rounded to 2 decimals)

(a) Determine the standard deviation and interquartile range of
the data.

Researchers in a 2015 study by Flannery et al. sought to
estimate the effectiveness of the seasonal influenza vaccine in
preventing acute respiratory infection (ARI). A total of 507
subjects from Texas who showed symptoms of ARI were recruited for
this study. The data provided show the result of each subject's
test for influenza.

Your firm works in construction and buys ASTM A325M8S bolts in
very large numbers. You are interested in purchasing bolts from
different suppliers and have obtained and tested samples of 200
bolts from three suppliers: Allnutt, Boltzman, Coachers.You have
tested these in your new bolt testing machine, purchased after you
had discovered your old bolt testing machine was performing
erratically. (For the purposes of this question, you are safe to
assume that the new machine works perfectly and that its...
