For the poll described in the Chapter problem, assume that the respondents had been asked for their political party affiliation, and the responses were coded as 0 (for Democrat), 1 (for Republican), 2 (for Independent), or 3 (for any other response). If we calculate the average (mean) of the numbers and get 0.95, how can that value be interpreted?

True or False
1.The goal of descriptive statistics is to simplify, summarize, and organize data.
2.A summary value, usually numerical, that describes a sample is called a parameter.
3.A researcher records the average age for a group of 25 preschool children selected to participate in a research study. The average age is an example of a statistic.
4.The median is the most commonly used measure of central tendency.
5.The mode is the best way to measure central tendency for data from a nominal scale of measurement.
6.A distribution of scores and a mean of 55 and a standard deviation of 4. The variance for this distribution is 16.
7.In a distribution with a mean of M = 36 and a standard deviation of SD = 8, a score of 40 would be considered an extreme value.
8.In a distribution with a mean of M = 76 and a standard deviation of SD = 7, a score of 91 would be considered an extreme value.
9.A negative correlation means that as the X values decrease, the Y values also tend to decrease.
10.The goal of a hypothesis test is to demonstrate that the patterns observed in the sample data represent real patterns in the population and are not simply due to chance or sampling error.

Biff observes that in every math test he has taken this year, he has scored 2 points higher than the previous test. His score on the first test was 56. He models his test scores with the exponential function \(\displaystyle{s}{\left({n}\right)}={28}⋅{2}^{{n}}\) where s(n) is the score on his nth test. Is this a reasonable model? Explain.

The Kroger Company is one of the largest grocery retailers in the United States, with over 2000 grocery stores across the country. Kroger uses an online customer opinion questionnaire to obtain performance data about its products and services and learn about what motivates its customers (Kroger website, April 2012).

The four questions were: Would you pay more for:
products that have a brand name?
products that are environmentally friendly?
products that are organic?
products that have been recommended by others?
For each question, the customers had the option of responding Yes if they would pay more or No if they would not pay more.
a. Are the data collected by Kroger in this example categorical or quantitative?

A multiple regression equation to predict a student's score in College Algebra \((\hat{y})\) based on their high school GPA (\(x_1x_1\)), their high school Algebra II grade (\(x_2x_2\)), and their placement test score (\(x_3x_3\)) is given by the equation below.
\(\hat{y}=-9+5x_1x_1+6x_2x_2+0.3x_3x_3\)
a) According to this equation, what is the predicted value of the student's College Algebra score if their high school GPA was a 3.9, their high school Algebra II grade was a 2 and their placement test score was a 40? Round to 1 decimal place.
b) According to this equation, what does the student's placement test score need to be if their high school GPA was a 3.9, their high school Algebra II grade was a 2, and their predicted College Algebra score was a 67? Round to 1 decimal place.
