a) 8
\(\displaystyle{b}{)}{\frac{{{12}}}{{{7}}}}\)
\(\displaystyle{c}{)}{\frac{{{5}}}{{{3}}}}\)
For d and e, I would convert them into improper fractions. You would do this by multiplying the denominator by the whole number (in d's case, the whole number is 1), and then add the product by the numerator \((2(\text{denominator}) \cdot 1(\text{whole number}) = 2 + 1(\text{numerator}))\). However, you would keep the denominator the same.
\(\displaystyle{d}{)}{1}{\frac{{{1}}}{{{2}}}}={\frac{{{3}}}{{{2}}}}\rightarrow{\frac{{{2}}}{{{3}}}}\)
\(\displaystyle{e}{)}{3}{\frac{{{3}}}{{{4}}}}={\frac{{{15}}}{{{4}}}}\rightarrow{\frac{{{4}}}{{{15}}}}\)
\(\displaystyle{f}{)}{\frac{{{1}}}{{{6}}}}\)
As you can see, if you multiply each corresponding problem with their reciprocal, they equal 1. In the end, you want the reciprocal of the problem to equal 1.

1. Who seems to have more variability in their shoe sizes, men or women?
a) Men
b) Women
c) Neither group show variability
d) Flag this Question
2. In general, why use the estimate of \(n-1\) rather than n in the computation of the standard deviation and variance?
a) The estimate n-1 is better because it is used for calculating the population variance and standard deviation
b) The estimate n-1 is never used to calculate the sample variance and standard deviation
c) \(n-1\) provides an unbiased estimate of the population and allows more variability when using a sample and gives a better mathematical estimate of the population
d) The estimate n-1 is better because it is use for calculation of both the population and sample variance as well as standard deviation.
