Given:
A data set is a symmetric distribution.
Every value in the data set is doubled.
Concept used:
Bivariate joint frequency distribution are contingency table.
The total row and total column of the marginal distribution while the body of the table is the joint frequencies
Calculation:
The height will be doubled but will still be symmetric.
Each value in a numerical data set is multiplied by a real number k
Where k > 0
The measures of center and variation is founded by multiplying the original measures by k
Therefore,
This is also dobled.

The pathogen Phytophthora capsici causes bell pepper plants to wilt and die. A research project was designed to study the effect of soil water content and the spread of the disease in fields of bell peppers. It is thought that too much water helps spread the disease. The fields were divided into rows and quadrants. The soil water content (percent of water by volume of soil) was determined for each plot. An important first step in such a research project is to give a statistical description of the data.

Suppose that, for a sample of pairs of observations from two variables, the linear correlation coefficient, r , is negative. Does this result necessarily imply that the variables are negatively linearly correlated?

One hundred adults and children were randomly selected and asked whether they spoke more than one language fluently. The data were recorded in a two-way table. Maria and Brennan each used the data to make the tables of joint relative frequencies shown below, but their results are slightly different. The difference is shaded. Can you tell by looking at the tables which of them made an error? Explain. Maria's table YesNo Children0.150.25 Adults0.10.6 Brennan’s table YesNo Children0.150.25 Adults0.10.5

The two-way table summarizes data from an experiment comparing the effectiveness of three different diets (A, B, and C) on weight loss. Researchers randomly assigned 300 volunteer subjects to the three diets. The response variable was whether each subject lost weight over a 1-year period. Diet Lost weight?

ABC Total  Yes 60180 No 40120 Total 90100110300

Suppose we randomly select one of the subjects from the experiment. Show that the events "Diet B" and "Lost weight" are independent.

The following advanced exercise use a generalized ratio test to determine convergence of some series that arise in particular applications, including the ratio and root test, are not powerful enough to determine their convergence. The test states that if $$ lim{n}a{2n}an<12 then anconverges,while if lim{n}a{2n+1}an>12, then an diverges.

Let an=11+x22+xnn+x1n=(n1)!(1+x)(2+x)(n+x).

Show that a2nanex/22 . For which x > 0 does the generalized ratio test imply convergence of n=1an?

Driven by technological advances and financial pressures, the number of surgeries performed in physicians' offices nationwide has been increasing over the years. The function f(t)=0.00447t3+0.09864t2+0.05192t+0.8(0t15) gives the number of surgeries (in millions) performed in physicians' offices in year t, with t=0 corresponding to the beginning of 1986.
a. Plot the graph of f in the viewing window [0,15]×[0,10].
b. Prove that f is increasing on the interval [0, 15].
