This quiz review covers materials from Weeks 1 and 2. Your quiz will be in Week 3 located in the Quiz Tab. Your quiz will mostly comprise of multiple choice, true/false, and essay questions. The answers are at the end of the questions.

1. The measurement that describes the variation of a data set is called the_________.

2. When a scatter plot's (x,y) points are all pretty close to the "line of best fit", then how would you describe the relationship between the points?

3. True or False: Cause and effect relationships cannot be determined using the coefficient of determination.

4. True or False: Correlations are used to help identify the relationship between two variables. For example, the amount of rain in July (x) and the size of tomatoes in August (y) could be analyzed using correlation and regression techniques.

5. The scores of the top ten finishers in a recent LPGA Valley of the Stars Tournament are listed below. (Source: Los Angeles Times)
73 67 72 67 76 72 73 68 71 73
Find the mode score.
6. Multiple choice: The Median is a. the most stable measurement of Central Tendency. b. the least stable measurement of Central Tendency. c. only stable if the standard deviation is small. d. equal to the InterQuartile Range.

7. The correlation coefficient (r) can vary between the values of

8. The ______________________________ measures "how well" the line of best fit matches the scatter diagram relationship.

9. The average age of the students in a statistics class is 20 years. Does this statement describe descriptive statistics, census, simulation, or inferential statistics?

10. Which regression equations show a negative correlation between x and y.

a) y = 2.3x | b) y = 5.4 - x | c) y = -2x - 8 | d) y = 3.4x + 5 | e) y = 2.9x - 12 |...

...Week 5 Individual assignment James Mullen MTH/221 10/19/13 John Beris Chapter 15 supplementary question 5 5. Let be a Boolean algebra that is partially ordered by≤. If x, y, z ∈ B, prove that x + y ≤ z if and only if x ≤ z and y ≤ z. If x ≤ z and y ≤ z, then from Exercise 6(b) of Section 15.4 we have x + y ≤ z + z. And by the Idempotent Law we have z + z = z. Conversely, suppose that x + y ≤ z.We find that x ≤ x + y, because x(x + y) = x + xy (by the Idempotent Law) _ x (by the Absorption Law). Since x ≤ x + y and x + y ≤ z, we have x ≤ z, because a partial order is transitive. (The proof that y ≤ z follows in a similar way.) 15.1 Question 2 2. Let w, x, and y be Boolean variables where the value of x is 1. For each of the following Boolean expressions, determine, if possible, the value of the expression. If you cannot determine the value of the expression, then find the number of assignments of values for w and y that will result in the value 1 for the expression. a) x + xy + w b) xy + w c) xy + xw d) xy + w a) if w, x, and y be Boolean variables, where the value of x is 1, we need to determine the value of the expression x + xy + w and if it is not possible to find the value of the expression, then find the number of assignments of value for w and y that will result in the value 1 for the expression. Using the law of Identity in the given expression: we get x-1 + xy + w = x (1 + y) + w. Using the law of Dominance, we get x +......
