Question

Use the table of values of f(x, y) to estimate the values of fx(3, 2), fx(3, 2.2), and fxy(3, 2). \begin{array}{|c|c|}\hline y & 1.8 & 2.0 & 2.2 \\ \hline x & & & \\ \hline 2.5 & 12.5 & 10.2 & 9.3 \\ \hline 3.0 & 18.1 & 17.5 & 15.9 \\ \hline 3.5 & 20.0 & 22.4 & 26.1 \\ \hline \end{array}

Use the table of values of \(f(x, y)\) to estimate the values of \(fx(3, 2)\), \(fx(3, 2.2)\), and \(fxy(3, 2)\).
\(\begin{array}{|c|c|}\hline y & 1.8 & 2.0 & 2.2 \\ \hline x & & & \\ \hline 2.5 & 12.5 & 10.2 & 9.3 \\ \hline 3.0 & 18.1 & 17.5 & 15.9 \\ \hline 3.5 & 20.0 & 22.4 & 26.1 \\ \hline \end{array}\)

Step 1
\(fx(3.2)=\frac{(f(3.5,\ 2)-f(2.5,\ 5))}{(3.5-2.5)}\)
\(=\frac{(22.4-10.2)}{1.0}\)
\(=\frac{12.2}{1.0}\)
\(=12.2\)
\(fx(3,\ 2.2)=\frac{(f(3.5,\ 2.2)-f(2.5,\ 2.2))}{(3.5-2.5)}\)
\(=\frac{26.1-9.3)}{1}=16.8\)
For \(fxy(3, 2)\), we have choices. If we don't care about centering the y, we can use the results already gathered here.
Then, \(fxy(3.2)=\frac{(fx(3,\ 2.2)-fx(3.2))}{(2.2-2)}\)
\(=\frac{(16.8-12.2)}{2}=23\)
If we had wanted to center it, we could have used
\(\frac{(f(3.5,\ 2.2)-f(3.5,\ 1.8)-f(2.5,\ 2.2)+f(2.5,\ 1.8))}{((2.2-1.8)\cdot(3.5-2.5)}\)
\(=\frac{(26.1-20-9.3+12.5)}{(4\cdot1)}=23.25\)

For the following exercises, use a graphing utility to create a scatter diagram of the data given in the table. Observe the shape of the scatter diagram to determine whether the data is best described by an exponential, logarithmic, or logistic model. Then use the appropriate regression feature to find an equation that models the data. When necessary, round values to five decimal places.
\(\begin{array}{|c|c|c|c|c|c|c|c|c|} \hline x & 0 & 0.5 & 1 & 1.5 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 5 & 6 & 7 & 8 \\ \hline f(x) & 2.2 & 2.9 & 3.9 & 4.8 & 6.4 & 9.3 & 12.3 & 15 & 16.2 & 17.3 & 17.9 \\ \hline \end{array}\)

1. Who seems to have more variability in their shoe sizes, men or women?
a) Men
b) Women
c) Neither group show variability
d) Flag this Question
2. In general, why use the estimate of \(n-1\) rather than n in the computation of the standard deviation and variance?
a) The estimate n-1 is better because it is used for calculating the population variance and standard deviation
b) The estimate n-1 is never used to calculate the sample variance and standard deviation
c) \(n-1\) provides an unbiased estimate of the population and allows more variability when using a sample and gives a better mathematical estimate of the population
d) The estimate n-1 is better because it is use for calculation of both the population and sample variance as well as standard deviation.
