Answer: 11 Question 9 A random sample of house sizes in major city has a sample mean of x¯=1204.9 sq ft and sample standard deviation of s=124.6 sq ft. Use the Empirical Rule to determine the approximate percentage of house sizes that lie between 955.7and 1454.1 sq ft. Round your answer to the nearest whole number (percent). ________________________________________ That is correct! ________________________________________ Answer: 95% Question 10 Is the statement below true or false? Independent is the property of two events in which the knowledge that one of the events occurred does not affect the chance the other occurs. ________________________________________ That is correct! ________________________________________ True False Question 11 Brayden tosses a coin 500 times. Of those 500 times, he observes heads a total of 416 times. Calculations show that the probability of this occurring by chance is less than 0.01, assuming the coin is fair. Determine the meaning of the significance level. ________________________________________ That is correct! ________________________________________ We expect that 416 of every 500 coin tosses will result in heads. At the 0.01 level of significance, the coin is likely not a fair coin. There is certainty that the coin is not a fair coin. The results are not statistically significant at the 0.05 level of significance. Question 12 A spinner contains the numbers 1 through 80. What is the probability that the spinner will land on a number that is not a multiple of 11? • Give your answer in fraction form. ________________________________________ That is correct! ________________________________________ Answer: 73/80 Question 13 Of the following pairs of events, which pair has mutually exclusive events? ________________________________________ That is correct! ________________________________________ rolling a sum greater than 7 from two rolls of a standard die and rolling a 4 for the first throw drawing a 2 and drawing a 4 with replacement from a standard deck of cards rolling a sum of 9 from two rolls of a standard die and rolling a 2 for the first roll drawing a red card and then drawing a black card with replacement from a standard deck of cards Question 14 Fill in the following contingency table and find the number of students who both go to the beach AND go to the mountains.

Round your answer to the nearest tenth. ________________________________________ That is correct! ________________________________________ Answer: 92.3 Question 19 The following data set represents the ages of all six grandchildren in a family. Find the variance for this data set of ages: 6, 3, 14, 11, 14, 6 • Round the final answer to one decimal place. ________________________________________ That is correct! Answer: Variance = 18 Question 20 A poll was conducted during the final game of the basketball season to determine whether fans wanted to see the defending champions win the game or the challenging team win the game. From the poll, 216 of the 374 residents sampled from urban areas want the defending champions to win the game. In more rural areas, 304 of the 466 residents polled want the defending champions to win the game. Assuming location has nothing to do with team preference, the probability that the data gathered was the result of chance is calculated to be 0.03. What is the correct interpretation of this calculation? ________________________________________ That is correct! ________________________________________ More people from rural areas want the defending champions to win the game. Exactly 216 out of every 374 urban residents want the defending champions to win the game. The results are statistically significant at the 0.05 level of significance in showing that the proportion of people in rural areas who want the defending champions to win the game is different than the proportion of people in urban areas. The data is not statistically significant at the 0.05 level of significance in showing that the proportion of people in rural areas who want the defending champions to win the game is different than the proportion of people in urban areas.
