Answer #1

Observations in the ascending order are :

72,74,75,77,79,82,83,87,88,90,91,91,91,92,96,97,97,98,100

Here, n=19 is odd.

Here, n=19

Q1=(n+1/4)th value of the observation

=(20/4)th value of the observation

=5th value of the observation

=79

Q2=Median= value of (n+1/2)th observation

= value of (19+1/2)th observation

= value of 10th observation

=90

Here, n=19

Q3=(3(n+1)/4)th value of the observation

=(3⋅20/4)th value of the observation

=15th value of the observation

=96

IQR= Q3-Q1= 96-79= 17

Data
For Tasks 1-8, consider the following data:
7.2, 1.2, 1.8, 2.8, 18, -1.9, -0.1, -1.5, 13.0, 3.2, -1.1,
7.0, 0.5, 3.9, 2.1, 4.1, 6.5
In Tasks 1-8 you are asked to conduct some computations
regarding this data. The computation should be carried out
manually. All the steps that go into the computation should be
presented and explained. (You may use R in order to verify your
computation, but not as a substitute for conducting the manual
computations.)

Business faculty at a prestigious community college wanted to
evaluate the infuence of Netflix on student academic performance.
After careful consideration, the faculty decided to conduct a
prelimary study to see if they could justify a more detailed
analysis. The preliminary study follows:
Sixty (60) students were selected for two sections of a Business
Adminstration class. The students were selected based on their
previous performance in an introductory level course. In order to
enroll in one of the sections, students...
