Step 1
In statistics, the variable is related to the quantitative data. If a data with a single variable is called univariate data. Generally, frequency distributions are characterized by the measures such as measures of central tendency, measures of dispersion, a measure of skewness, etc.
Step 2
The spread of the data values means, scatter, or variation of values in data from any measure of central tendency. In otherworld lack of uniformity.
The measure which gives you the spread of data values is a measure of dispersion. It is also called a measure of variation
Explanation:
The measure of location is used to summarise the data using numerical values, Hence it is not used to spread data. Hence we decline option a)
The measure of central tendency used to find the central value of the data using mean, median mode, etc. hence we decline option c)
The measure of percentile is used used to measure the position, which is called a measure of position. hence we decline this option d)
The required answer is,
option b) measure of dispersion

Consider the accompanying data on flexural strength (MPa) for concrete beams of a certain type.
\(\begin{array}{|c|c|}\hline 11.8 & 7.7 & 6.5 & 6 .8& 9.7 & 6.8 & 7.3 \\ \hline 7.9 & 9.7 & 8.7 & 8.1 & 8.5 & 6.3 & 7.0 \\ \hline 7.3 & 7.4 & 5.3 & 9.0 & 8.1 & 11.3 & 6.3 \\ \hline 7.2 & 7.7 & 7.8 & 11.6 & 10.7 & 7.0 \\ \hline \end{array}\)
a) Calculate a point estimate of the mean value of strength for the conceptual population of all beams manufactured in this fashion. \([Hint.\ ?x_{j}=219.5.]\) (Round your answer to three decimal places.)
MPa
State which estimator you used.
\(x\)
\(p?\)
\(\frac{s}{x}\)
\(s\)
\(\tilde{\chi}\)
b) Calculate a point estimate of the strength value that separates the weakest \(50\%\) of all such beams from the strongest \(50\%\).
MPa
State which estimator you used.
\(s\)
\(x\)
\(p?\)
\(\tilde{\chi}\)
\(\frac{s}{x}\)
c) Calculate a point estimate of the population standard deviation ?. \([Hint:\ ?x_{i}2 = 1859.53.]\) (Round your answer to three decimal places.)
MPa
Interpret this point estimate.
This estimate describes the linearity of the data.
This estimate describes the bias of the data.
This estimate describes the spread of the data.
This estimate describes the center of the data.
Which estimator did you use?
\(\tilde{\chi}\)
\(x\)
\(s\)
\(\frac{s}{x}\)
\(p?\)
d) Calculate a point estimate of the proportion of all such beams whose flexural strength exceeds 10 MPa. [Hint: Think of an observation as a "success" if it exceeds 10.] (Round your answer to three decimal places.)
e) Calculate a point estimate of the population coefficient of variation \(\frac{?}{?}\). (Round your answer to four decimal places.)
State which estimator you used.
\(p?\)
\(\tilde{\chi}\)
