(a) Which measures of central tendency do not exist for this data set? Choose all that apply.

Mean

Median

Mode

None of these measures

(b) Suppose that the measurement 23 (the largest measurement in the data set) were replaced by 43. Which measures of central tendency would be affected by the change? Choose all that apply.

Mean

Median

Mode

None of these measures

(c) Suppose that, starting with the original data set, the smallest measurement were removed. Which measures of central tendency would be changed from those of the original data set? Choose all that apply.

Mean

Median

Mode

None of these measures

(d) Which of the following best describes the distribution of the original data? Choose only one.

Negatively skewed

Positively skewed

Roughly symmetrical

Answer #1

(a) All the measures of central tendency exist for the dataset. Mean, Median and Mode can be computed from this dataset. The mean is 12.35, the median is 12.5 and the mode is 11.

(b) Since,the highest observation is changed and it is not the most frequent observation, so the mode will be unchanged. The median is not affected as the order of the dataset does not change. Only, the mean will be affected if 23 is replaced by 43.

(c) Since, the smallest observation is not mode, it will not be changed. However, the median and mean will be affected.

(d) Since, the mean of the dataset is close to the median, the dataset is roughly symmetrical.

Using the five number summary, describe (1) the shape, (2)
appropriate central tendency, (3) appropriate dispersion method,
& (4) any extreme value of the data.

A researcher has conducted a study and has obtained a data set.
He is seeking your help and requests that you calculate the mean,
range, median, and mode and distinguish which of these are measures
of central tendency and which are measures of variability.
Additionally, he has calculated the variance and standard
deviation, and would also like you to classify these measures. He
thanks you in advance for your help. The data set is as follows:
