Graph: Consider Walking speed as y-coordinates and population as x-coordinate and the table for this is given below: Population (thousands)WalkingSpeed (feet per second)xcoordinatesycoordinates5.50.6141.0711.61381.93422.2

Use these points to plot the scatter plot. Thus, the scatter plot for the data is: image Interpretation: The data in the scatter plot increase rapidly at first and then begin to level off a bit, the shape suggests that the logarithmic function is good choice for modeling the data.

The article “Modeling Sediment and Water Column Interactions for Hydrophobic Pollutants” (Water Research, 1984: 1169-1174) suggests the uniform distribution on the interval (7.5, 20) as a model for depth (cm) of the bioturbation layer in sediment in a certain region. a. What are the mean and variance of depth? b. What is the cdf of depth? c. What is the probability that observed depth is at most 10? Between 10 and 15? d. What is the probability that the observed depth is within 1 standard deviation of the mean value? Within 2 standard deviations?

Aurora is planning to participate in an event at her school's field day that requires her to complete tasks at various stations in the fastest time possible. To prepare for the event, she is practicing and keeping track of her time to complete each station. The x-coordinate is the station number, and the y-coordinate is the time in minutes since the start of the race that she completed the task. (1,3),(2,6),(3,12),(4,24)
Part A: Is this data modeling an algebraic sequence or a geometric sequence? Explain your answer.
Part B: Use a recursive formula to determine the time she will complete station 5.
Part C: Use an explicit formula to find the time she will complete the 9th station.

Suppose that you want to perform a hypothesis test to compare four population means, using independent samples. In each case, decide whether you would use the one-way ANOVA test, the Kruskal-Wallis test, or neither of these tests. Preliminary data analyses of the samples suggest that the four distributions of the variable a. are not normal but have the same shape. b. are normal and have the same shape.

Here's a problem I thought of that I don't know how to approach:
You have a fair coin that you keep on flipping. After every flip, you perform a hypothesis test based on all coin flips thus far, with significance level α, where your null hypothesis is that the coin is fair and your alternative hypothesis is that the coin is not fair. In terms of α, what is the expected number of flips before the first time that you reject the null hypothesis?
Edit based on comment below: For what values of α is the answer to the question above finite? For those values for which it is infinite, what is the probability that the null hypothesis will ever be rejected, in terms of α?
Edit 2: My post was edited to say "You believe that you have a fair coin." The coin is in fact fair, and you know that. You do the hypothesis tests anyway. Otherwise the problem is unapproachable because you don't know the probability that any particular toss will come up a certain way.
