The Great White Shark. In an article titled “Great White, Deep Trouble” (National Geographic, Vol. 197(4), pp. 2–29), Peter Benchley—the author of JAWS—discussed various aspects of the Great White Shark (Carcharodon carcharias). Data on the number of pups borne in a lifetime by each of 80 Great White Shark females are provided on the WeissStats site. Use the technology of your choice to
a. obtain frequency and relative-frequency distributions, using single-value grouping.
b. construct and interpret either a frequency histogram or a relativefrequency histogram.

Step 1
The data represents the number of pups borne in a lifetime by case of 80 great white shark females which is provided from the Weiss State site.
Single value grouping:
A grouping method in which each class is used to represents a single possible value. The classes are termed as single value classes, and this grouping method is referred to be single value grouping.
The most appropriate place for use this single value grouping method is that the data to be in discrete nature with relatively few distinct observations.
The frequencies are calculated by using the tally mark and the method of single value grouping is used because, range of the data is from 3 to 12. Here the number of times each class levels repeats is the frequency of that particular class.
Relative frequency:
The general formula for the relative frequency is,
Relative Frequency=\(\displaystyle{\frac{{{F}{r}{e}{q}{u}{e}{n}{s}{y}}}{{{T}{o}{t}{a}{l}{\mathfrak{{e}}}{q}{u}{e}{n}{s}{y}}}}\)
In general, the Proportion is calculated by the product of relative frequency of each class with 100.
From the Minitab output, the relative frequency is expressed in terms of percent with the pups type of female shark is obtained.
Software procedure:
Step by step procedure to obtain the frequency distribution for marital status and drinking status using MINITAB software.
Choose Stat > Tables>Tally>Individual variables.
Enterthe columns of pupsin variable box.
Select the check box of count and percent under display.
Output using MINITAB software is given below:
Tally for Discrete Variables: PUPS
\[\begin{array}{cc} &Tally Paps Cont Percent& \\ \hline 3 & 2 & 2.5 \\ 4 & 5 & 6.25 \\ 5 & 10 & 12.5 \\ 6 & 11 & 13.75 \\7 & 17 & 21.25 \\ 8 & 17 & 21.25 \\ 9 & 11 & 13.75 \\ 10 & 4 & 5 \\ 11 & 2 & 2.5 \\12 & 1 & 1.25 \\N= & 80 & \end{array}\]

Software procedure:
Step by step procedure to draw the histogram chart by using MINITAB software.
Choose Graph > Histogram.
Choose Simple, and then click OK.
InGraph variables, enter the corresponding column of pups.
Inscale on y-axis, make click on frequency.
Click on ok.
Output using MINITAB software is given below:

From the output of frequency histogram, it is observed that the range of the pups is from 1 to 12 and the most of the number of pups representatives per female is occurred more frequently from 7 to 8 respectively.

Learning math The Core Plus Mathematics Project (CPMP) is an innovative approach to teaching Math- ematics that engages students in group investigations and mathematical modeling. After field tests in 36 high schools over a three-year period, researchers compared the performances of CPMP students with those taught using a traditional curriculum. In one test, students had to solve applied Algebra problems using calculators. Scores for 320 CPMP students were compared to those of a control group of 273 students in a traditional Math pro- gram. Computer software was used to create a confidence interval for the difference in mean scores. (Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 31, no. 3[2000]) Conf level: 95% Variable: Mu(CPMP) – Mu(Ctrl) Interval: (5.573, 11.427) a) What’s the margin of error for this confidence interval? b) If we had created a 98% CI, would the margin of error be larger or smaller?c) Explain what the calculated interval means in context. d) Does this result suggest that students who learn Mathematics with CPMP will have significantly higher mean scores in Algebra than those in traditional programs? Explain.

A club at school decided to help the homeless this year. Last month, the club got people to donate 879 blankets it can give to homeless people and families who need to stay warm. It gives about 150 blankets away each week. Write an equation modeling how many blankets it will have left over time.

Here’s an interesting challenge you can give to a friend. Hold a $1 (or larger!) bill by an upper corner. Have a friend prepare to pinch a lower corner, putting her fingers near but not touching the bill. Tell her to try to catch the bill when you drop it by simply closing her fingers. This seems like it should be easy, but it’s not. After she sees that you have released the bill, it will take her about 0.25 s to react and close her fingers-which is not fast enough to catch the bill. How much time does it take for the bill to fall beyond her grasp? The length of a bill is 16 cm.
