Data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics' Consumer Expenditure
Survey show customers spend an average of (µ) $508 a year for
cellular phone services. The standard deviation of annual cellular
spending is (σ) $132. The random variable, yearly cellular
spending, is denoted by X.
We plan to select a random sample of 200 cellular customers.

Does delaying oral practice hinder learning a foreign language?
Researchers randomly assigned 16 beginning students of Russian to
begin speaking practice immediately and another 16 to delay
speaking for 4 weeks. At the end of the semester both groups took a
standard test of comprehension of spoken Russian. Suppose that in
the population of all beginning students, the test scores for early
speaking vary according to the N(34, 8) distribution and
scores for delayed speaking have the N(29, 6)
distribution....

(a) Obtain a frequency distribution for the test. (The number of
bins and intervals should be determined according to the rules in
the class slides). (b) Draw a frequency histogram.
(c) Use the frequency distribution to compute the mean
and the median and variance. Are there any outliers in this data
set?
