Step 1
The level of measurement of the variable “favorite color” is nominal level of measurement, that is, option (B). The nominal level of measurement can be classified as measurement of data where numbers are only used to classify the data and numbers do not have any quantitative meaning. The words, letters and the alpha-numeric symbols can also be used in this level of measurement.
Step 2
The option, “Ordinal” can be correct because the favorite color does not have a defined order. Similarly, the properties of ratio and interval level of measurement is not fulfilled by the variable “favorite color”.
Hence, option (B), “Nominal” is the correct level of measurement.

Loretta, who turns eighty this year, has just learned about blood pressure problems in the elderly and is interested in how her blood pressure compares to those of her peers. Specifically, she is interested in her systolic blood pressure, which can be problematic among the elderly. She has uncovered an article in a scientific journal that reports that the mean systolic blood pressure measurement for women over seventy-five is 133.0 mmHg, with a standard deviation of 5.1 mmHg.
Assume that the article reported correct information. Complete the following statements about the distribution of systolic blood pressure measurements for women over seventy-five.
a) According to Chebyshev's theorem, at least \(?36\% 56\% 75\% 84\%\ or\ 89\%\) of the measurements lie between 122.8 mmHg and 143.2 mmHg.
b) According to Chebyshev's theorem, at least \(8/9 (about\ 89\%)\) of the measurements lie between mmHg and mmHg. (Round your answer to 1 decimal place.)
